Authorities say a jaguar attacked a woman who crossed a barrier while trying to take a photo Saturday at a wildlife park west of Phoenix.
Wildlife World Zoo authorities say emergency responders took the woman to a hospital to treat cuts on one of her arms and hand.
The aftermath was caught on cell phone footage. It is graphic so be forewarned.
Zoo officials say the jaguar never got out of her enclosure and won’t be put down because of the incident, which is being fully investigated.
Please understand why barriers are put in place. Sending prayers to the family tonight. pic.twitter.com/2MPb8bXhwR
