Woman who lost face in chimp attack to get $4 million: reports

(Reuters) - A woman who underwent a full face transplant after being mauled by a chimpanzee will receive about $4 million from the estate of the animal's owner, who has since died, according to media reports on Thursday.

Charla Nash was attacked in February 2009, when her friend's 200-pound chimpanzee went on a rampage and ripped off her nose, lips, eyes and hands.

The chimp was shot and killed by a police officer.

Nash's brother, Michael, filed a lawsuit on his sister's behalf, seeking $50 million from the estate of the chimp's owner, Sandra Herold, who died in 2010.

Brenden Leydon, an attorney for Herold's estate, said the case was settled, according to an article published online by the Connecticut Post. He did not immediately respond to requests for confirmation or details.

According to documents obtained by the Associated Press, Nash will receive $4 million from the estate.

Nash and Herold had been longtime friends, and Nash had gone to Herold's home in Stamford, Connecticut, to help get the chimp back in its cage.

An attorney for Nash also could not be reached for comment.

Glad to see they stopped monkeying around and really put their noses down to stop the crap flinging and take on this gorilla-sized case.

Day'am. And they should serve that evil chimp empty bananas for the rest of its life. Or we could always outlaw having a pet chimp. What kind of person wants a pet chimp anyway. Just plain stupid.

All the money in the world won't bring her face back. All the suffering for the rest of the life for $4 million? Not worth it. Plus the lawyers probably get 1/2 of the money anyways.

Curious as to the back story. They were friends and the chimps owner had some assets. I wonder how much the chimps owner helped out her friend before her death.

That would be kind of hard, considering it was killed by police

I would imagine the fact that she went there to help put the animal back in the cage came into play? I mean, you do take a risk in doing so and I'll bet that factored in.

Horrible...wild animals as pets are still wild animals first and foremost. Never forget the time I looked to see my sister in law holding my daughter INSIDE a barricade saying "do not feed" and had her hand feeding monkeys at the zoo. My heart sank and I it was a total "what the hell are you thinking??" conversation.
