An Arizona woman got attacked by a jaguar after she crossed the barrier to take a selfie with the animal. The jaguar will not be punished nor euthanized. The woman suffered injuries in her arm after this incident on Saturday. The feline was said to have dug its claws into the woman after she had jumped the fence for a picture. Witnesses say they heard the lady scream for help. When people showed up to help, they said the jaguar had its claws into the woman’s hand and flesh. Witnesses were trying to distract the jaguar enough to let the woman go by throwing water bottles into the cage. On Sunday, the woman who was attacked has apologized for the incident and admits that she was in the wrong for jumping the barrier. She is recovering well but had to get stitches on her arm.
The four year old jaguar has been removed from the exhibit for now while the zoo is investigating this incident. It is unclear whether the woman stuck her arm into the cage of the jaguar, but the jaguar claws reached through the metal barrier and then clamped around the woman’s arm.
