Colorado Mountain Bike Dog Attack Suit Settled For $1 Million

EAGLE, Colo. (AP) - Lawyers for a woman attacked by two sheep dogs during a Colorado mountain bike race say they've settled a lawsuit against the dogs' owners for $1 million.

Renee Legro was mauled by two Great Pyrenees dogs while riding her bike at Camp Hale, a former Army training camp in Eagle County, in 2008. Sheep rancher Sam Robinson, who pastured sheep on surrounding national forest land, was twice convicted of owning a dangerous dog, a misdemeanor, but Legro and her husband also sued Robinson and his wife.

After several dismissals and appeals, Legro's lawyer, Joseph Bloch, announced Wednesday that the Robinsons' insurance company, Travelers, agreed to pay the maximum amount allowed under the Robinsons' policy - $1 million. The case was dismissed last week.

The insurance company didn't immediately have an immediate comment.
