Do you think the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium should be found negligent and forced to pay damages to the family of the toddler who was fatally mauled by African painted dogs after falling into the exhibit last fall? <More Info>
The Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium is being sued in connection with the two-year-old boy who was mauled to death after he slipped from his mother's grasp and fell into the African painted dog exhibit last fall. The lawsuit claims the zoo knew or should have known how to protect its visitors from the killer dogs and was negligent for failing to have an adequate emergency response plan. The lawsuit seeks monetary damages.
