  • Jaguar that attacked selfie-taking US woman won't be put down

The attack occurred Saturday at Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park, a privately owned facility outside Phoenix.

Woman suffers non-life threatening injuries after she crossed a barrier to take a picture and was attacked by a jaguar through a fence at the Wildlife World Zoo. "Sending prayers to the family tonight", the zoo tweeted. Witnesses rushed to distract the jaguar and save the woman from its grasp.

Zoo officials said the woman received several stitches at a nearby hospital but was not kept overnight.

"I see another girl with her up against the cage of the jaguar and the jaguar has clasped its claws outside of the cage around her hand and into her flesh".

Wildlife World Zoo announced the incident on Twitter, urging visitors to "please understand why barriers are put in place".

"We can promise you nothing will happen to our jaguar". She called the whole incident a "crazy accident" and expressed regret at video of the incident hitting the internet.

The woman apologized to the zoo after the incident was over, although she did not admit to climbing over the concrete barrier.

"There's no way to fix people crossing barriers", zoo director Mickey Ollson, told KTVK.

A jaguar that attacked a woman who posed outside its zoo enclosure in Arizona will not be put down, zoo officials said.

Adam Wilkerson, who was at the zoo with his mother and two sons, said his mother successfully distracted the jaguar by shoving a water bottle into the cage. The woman, who is in her 30s, found herself in trouble when the big cat reached out and grabbed her arm with its paw, leaving lacerations. "The jaguar just goes after the bottle".

"She won't be put down", the zoo tweeted in response to someone's inquiry about the animal.

"Without thinking, I had no idea what I was going to see, I just ran over there", he said.

Last summer, a male jaguar escaped from an enclosure at Audubon Zoo in New Orleans and went on a rampage, killing nine other animals at the zoo: five alpaca, three foxes and an emu.
