A woman suffered serious injuries to her arm after being attacked by a jaguar at Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park, just outside Phoenix, on Saturday, according to ABC News.
The woman was attempting to take a selfie when the animal reached out and swiped at her, according to the Rural Metro Fire Department.
The zoo said the woman crossed a barrier in an attempt to get the photo.
“We can promise you nothing will happen to our jaguar,” the zoo said. “She’s a wild animal and there were proper barriers in place to keep our guests safe- not a wild animals (sic) fault when barriers are crossed. Still sending prayers to her and her family.”
