Fellow Zoo-Goers Rescue Woman Attacked by Jaguar

A woman at a zoo was trying to take a selfie with one of the animals when she got a lot more than she bargained for. The unidentified woman crossed a barrier that was intended to keep visitors at a safe distance from the enclosure at Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park, Arizona.

A jaguar attacked the woman as she posed for the selfie. The jaguar took a swipe at her, clawing her arm. “The visitor sustained non-life-threatening injuries to their arm from one of our female jaguars,” the zoo tweeted. Fortunately, she was rescued by witnesses at the zoo who distracted the jaguar and pulled the woman away to safety.

The jaguar will not be put down, zoo officials said.
