    We had a similar case here in socal. A chimp mutilated a woman, and I believe she tried to sue unsuccessfully as well. I think she was giving the monkey anti-depressants to keep it from getting aggravated. We used to stop by as see the guy, she would have put him in her front yard, and it was near a hospital I was always at. Keep wild animals at your own peril.

    The state has no responsibility to protect you. Read that again.

    Actually, the state has a responsibility to protect people from dangerous animals once it creates an agency funded to do just that.

    another reason for prudent citizens to carry firearms.

    When you don't carry firearms you can be attacked by a chimp

    when you are attacked by a chimp, it rips your face off

    when you get your face ripped off-you suffer horrible pain and disfigurement

    when you suffer disfigurement, people treat you like a freak

    always carry a firearm and don't be treated like a freak!

    since you cannot sue the police for the harm caused by a criminal attack why should she be able to sue the state even if controlling dangerous animals was its responsibility?

    A general responsibility-not a specific one.

    If the state has labelled the criminal as dangerous knows that the dangerous criminal lives in X place, and refused to use its tax payer funded agencies to deal with it, then they clearly failed to do the job for which they were commissioned and should be sued. This is no different than a state refusing to deal with waste by companies until people start dying from polluted waterways.
