The family of a Crestview girl who was brutally attacked by a pit bull two years ago has settled a pair of lawsuits in connection with the attack.

Paige Woody, the girls’ mother who was also injured in the attack, confirmed that lawsuits filed against the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society and animal control officer Kevin Schoeneman in August 2018 went to mediation July 11 and the settlements were approved on Sept. 5.

Woody’s daughter, Zoey Green, then 5 years old, was attacked by a 110-pound pit bull at the home of a Crestview family on March 25, 2017.

The pit bull grabbed the child by her face and dragged her into the yard, where the attack continued. Zoey lost an eyelid, suffered a broken jaw and had to essentially have her face put back together with hundreds of stitches and staples.
