Cock-a-doodle-sue! Town board settles injury claim over petting zoo rooster's foul behaviour

SMITHTOWN, N.Y. - A Long Island town has approved a $20,000 settlement with the family of a girl who was injured by a petting zoo rooster.

Newsday (http://nwsdy.li/1uAkwGC ) reports the settlement was approved by the Smithtown Town Board on Tuesday night. A judge still needs to sign off on the agreement.

The Weiss family sued on behalf of their daughter, Kaylie. She was injured by the rooster during a 2011 visit to the petting zoo at the town's Hoyt Farm Nature Preserve.

Officials did not describe the extent of the injuries to Kaylie. Officials also did not specify her age, other than saying she is younger than 18.

An attorney representing the Weiss family did not immediately comment.
