Georgia – Anna Maria Giacomi has settled her lawsuit against a commercial donkey farm in north Georgia for an undisclosed amount after losing an arm and leg to a donkey attack.  She knew the donkey well and had been feeding it for 5 years before the attack.

The attack happened on Thanksgiving day, 2015.  “The donkey grabbed my wrist and started biting, chewing, crunching going up my arm,” Giacomi told reporters.  After the attack, she was rushed to the hospital, where the terrible attack turned truly horrific.  Giacomi contracted the flesh-eating bacteria, necrotizing fasciitis, and an arm and leg were amputated. “I woke up with no arm and no leg. It was hideous,” she said.

Giacomi moved to Florida to live with her son, but she said her life has never been the same since the attack.  She plans to sue the hospital for negligence.
