Tiger Attacks Worker at Wynnewood Park

 

WYNNEWOOD, Okla. (AP) _ A worker suffered severe damage to her left arm after she stuck it in a tiger enclosure at a central Oklahoma animal park and couldn't withdraw it before the tiger clawed her.
 
Park owner Joe Schreibvogel said the attack occurred about 10 a.m. Saturday and the woman was in surgery several hours later. He said doctors were trying to save her arm.
 
Schreibvogel, owner of the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood, said the arm was still attached and the young woman was conscious and able to talk and move her fingers when she was airlifted to an Oklahoma City hospital.
 
He didn't release the woman's name because her family hadn't been notified of the incident. Schreibvogel said the worker violated protocol by sticking her arm into the cage.
