Tiger rips arm of worker at US animal park
WYNNEWOOD, Oklahoma (AP) - A tiger ripped up the left arm of a worker at a central Oklahoma animal park after the woman stuck her hand into the giant cat's enclosure.
Joe Schreibvogel, owner of Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood, said the woman was in surgery on Saturday afternoon at an Oklahoma City hospital where doctors were trying to save her arm.
"He tore her arm up pretty bad," Schreibvogel said. "Her entire arm was still attached. It was badly, badly damaged."
Co-workers quickly tended to the woman before she was airlifted to the hospital, he said.
