Woman Attacked by Jaguar Apologizes to Arizona Zoo, Accepts She Was at Fault

The woman who was attacked by a jaguar at an Arizona zoo while trying to take a selfie with the big cat has apologized to the zoo. According to a Wildlife World Zoo spokesperson, the woman returned to the facility on Sunday, met with its owner, and admitted she was at fault for the incident. The woman added that she she loved the zoo and “feels horrible about the bad publicity the zoo is getting regarding the incident,” said zoo spokesperson Kristy Morcum, according to AZ Family. The zoo has insisted that the jaguar won’t be euthanized—however, it reportedly wasn’t in its enclosure on Sunday. The woman crossed a barrier near the fence of the beast’s enclosure at the Litchfield Park site to try to get her photo. The jaguar then “reached out and attacked her arm,” Fox 10 reported. The woman was hospitalized.
