Jaguar attacks woman trying to take photo at Arizona zoo

By  | 

PHOENIX (AP) -- Authorities say a jaguar attacked a woman who crossed a barrier while trying to take a photo Saturday at a wildlife park west of Phoenix.

A jaguar attacked a woman taking a picture at a zoo in Arizona.

Wildlife World Zoo authorities say emergency responders took the woman to a hospital to treat cuts on one of her arms and hand.

Zoo officials say the jaguar never got out of her enclosure and won't be put down because of the incident, which is being fully investigated.

The private facility has more than 600 species and 6,000 animals on display.

The woman's name, age and hometown weren't immediately available.
