Zookeeper hospitalized after tiger attack at Topeka Zoo

A zookeeper is recovering in the hospital after she was attacked Saturday morning by a tiger at the Topeka, Kansas, zoo.

A keeper at a zoo in Topeka, Kan., was attacked by one of the facility's tigers on Saturday morning.

"She's now being treated at a local hospital", Wiley shared, describing her condition as "stable".

So this is the ideal full moon to reorganise your daily routine, reinforce your relationships, and cut out any bad habits. In January, the full moon was called the Wolf Moon because wolves are known to howl whenever it appears.

The tiger, named Sanjiv, and the zookeeper were in the "same place" Saturday when he attacked her, said Molly Hadfield, a spokeswoman for the City of Topeka. She suffered lacerations and punctures to the back of her head, neck and back. The keeper does regularly go into the enclosure to clean up after the tigers. She's now in stable condition, Wiley said.

"The male Sumatran tiger, Sanjiv, simply reacted the way that is normal for a tiger to do", Wiley said.

The zoo said a complete investigation will be conducted over the next several days that will review all policies and procedures around tiger management at the zoo.

"There really isn't a circumstance where they should have been in the same space, so there was some sort of error that occurred here", he said. Wiley said Sanjiv recently fathered four critically endangered cubs.

Praising the staff members for controlling the incident within about 10 minutes, Wiley shared that had it not been for "three heroes on our staff... this could have been a very different outcome".

The zoo was shut down for about 45 minutes but has reopened.
