Pittsburgh Zoo, parents settle over toddler’s mauling death

General June 2, 2014

The family of a 2-year-old boy who was mauled to death by African wild dogs at the Pittsburgh Zoo have reached a legal settlement with the institution, officials said on Monday. Maddox Derkosh was fatally attacked at an African wild dog exhibit in November 2012, when he fell into the enclosure from an area where his mother had lifted him to get a better view. Details of the agreement will remain confidential, according to a statement from the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. Maddox’s parents, Jason and Elizabeth Derkosh, filed a wrongful death and negligence lawsuit in 2013, seeking a minimum of $300,000.
