Victim, Charla Nash of Travis The Chimpanzee Attack Feared Him

Brothers: Victim of chimp attack feared animal

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — The brothers of a Connecticut woman mauled and blinded by a chimpanzee say she feared the animal might hurt someone and described him as mean and so strong that she had to repair his cage several times.

Michael and Stephen Nash’s comments to The Associated Press provide the first public look at Charla Nash’s dealings with Travis, a 200-pound chimpanzee that went berserk when his owner asked Nash to help lure him back into his house.

The chimp ripped off Nash’s hands, nose, lips and eyelids in a February attack, and she remains hospitalized in stable condition at the Cleveland Clinic.

Nash was a friend and employee of the chimp’s owner, Sandra Herold of Stamford. Nash’s family has filed a $50 million lawsuit against Herold. Herold’s attorney says there was no way to predict Travis would attack Nash.
