A woman was attacked by a jaguar as she was apparently trying to get a photo outside the big catís enclosure at Wildlife World Zoo in Arizona, authorities said.

Shawn Gilleland, a spokesman for the Rural Metro Fire Department, told The Washington Post on Sunday that fire crews said the woman, who is in her 30s, climbed over a barrier at the zoo Saturday to get closer to the jaguarís enclosure so that she could get a selfie with the animal. The jaguar reached out and grabbed her arm with its paw, leaving lacerations, Gilleland said.

Gilleland said the woman, who was not publicly identified, was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.

Personally, I think they should not only ID her, but charge her for trespass or harassing endangered animals or just fucking stupidity. Idiots really should just be subject to the natural consequences of the Disneyfication of nature and their ignorance.
