Woman taking selfie attacked by jaguar at Wildlife World Zoo

Woman Jaguar Arizona Zoo

Crews who responded to the scene said the woman was attempting to take a selfie near the fence of the jaguar enclosure when the cat reached out and attacked one of the woman's arm.

She was taken to a hospital for injuries that were described as non-life-threatening, the report said.

A woman who crossed the barrier of a jaguar enclosure at an Arizona zoo was hospitalized Saturday after the animal attacked her. For the past 35 years, Wildlife World Zoo has served literally hundreds of thousands and over a million customers with very few injuries and usually those injuries result from misbehavior of the visitor or human error.

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

"We can promise you nothing will happen to our jaguar", the zoo told CNN.

The incident is being fully investigated, the zoo also said.

Wilkerson said he was standing behind the woman, but didn't want to pull her off.

Kristy Morcom, a spokeswoman for the zoo, told Arizona Family that while the jaguar was not at fault, she will remain off the exhibit pending an investigation for the sake of her privacy and well-being.

The zoo tweeted a statement saying paramedics were called at the request of the woman's family, and at no point was the jaguar out of its enclosure.

It is reported that a guest ran over to help the woman who had crossed over a barrier to take a selfie with the jaguar.

Wilkerson then said his mother tried to distract the jaguar by shoving a water bottle through the cage. "The jaguar lets go of the girl somewhat because the claw catches on just her sweater".

The zoo said in a tweet that it was sending prayers to the woman's family.

First, we must note that her injuries are non-life threatening.

Wilkerson did not see the actual attack and could not comment on how the victim got so close to the animal.

The incident recalls the case of a jaguar that escaped its enclosure at a zoo in Louisiana and went on a rampage.

Litchfield Park is about 20 miles from Phoenix.
