A young woman was attacked and killed by a lion on Sunday in a North Carolina Wildlife enclosure. The 22-year-old had just worked as a trainee at the Wildlife Records Center for two weeks, said the Sheriff's office in Caswell County in a statement that has been leaked to several US media.
The incident had occurred during routine cleaning of the cabinet. One of the lions had moved from the locked terrain to the area where the people had been. The summoned policemen first tried to dump the lion. After several attempts had failed, the animal had been shot to safely restore the young woman's body.
The zoo is home to about 80 wildlife, including 20 large cats. The park is closed to visitors for further notice.
