Jaguar at Arizona zoo attacks woman taking selfie

World

A jaguar attacked a woman trying to take a selfie at a zoo in Arizona.

The Wildlife World Zoo says witnesses saw her crossing over a barrier to take a picture of the jaguar enclosure.

That’s when the animal reached out and attacked her arm. The jaguar let go after a witness distracted it with a bottle.

The woman needed medical attention, but is expected to be okay.

This is not the first time the female jaguar has hurt a park visitor. The zoo director says a year ago it scratched another person who crossed the barrier.
