Woman Attacked By A Jaguar After Climbing Over A Zoo Fence To Take A Selfie

Here’s a perfect example of how “doing it for the ‘gram” can go terribly a wrong. A woman visiting an Arizona zoo thought it would be cool to climb over a barrier near a Jaguar’s enclosure to capture a great selfie.

Although the animal was not out of cage, the animal reached out and swiped at her.  The woman suffered severe lacerations to her arm and was bleeding heavily. Pictures capture by witnesses show the woman lying on the floor crying in pain.

Zoo officials did acknowledge the incident in a statement saying,

“We regret to inform that this evening, before closing there was an incident reported involving a guest, who crossed over the barrier to get a photo, according to eye witnesses,” Wildlife World Zoo said in a statement. “The visitor sustained non-life threatening injuries to their arm from one of our female jaguars. At the request of the family, paramedics were called. At no time was the animal out of its enclosure. The incident is being fully investigated,” Daily Mail quotes.

Zoo director Mickey Ollson said it is the second time in a month that the jaguar has swiped at a visitor.
