Woman Attacked By Jaguar At Zoo Speaks Out About Ordeal

A woman who was attacked by a jaguar at a zoo in Arizona has insisted that she h as learned her lesson after leaning over the barrier - but advised the zoo to review their safety standards. She was out for the day with her family at Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park when the incident with the female animal happened. Only identified as Leanne, she has spoken out for the first time, saying that the big cat took a swipe at her arm when she leaned through the safety fence, and put her arm in front of it with her camera.

Speaking to CBS News, she said: "The black jaguar was up against the fence we happened to be walking by and said 'hey, let's get some good pictures'. I was in the wrong for leaning over the barrier, but I think the zoo should consider moving their fence back."

Passers-by then stepped in to help Leanne, who by this stage was in agony. One visitor, Adam Wilkerson, was at the zoo with his two sons when it all unfolded. Thinking on his feet, he pushed a water bottle into the enclosure in order to distract the jaguar, while Leanne got help. She was taken to hospital but released later that day with what was described as 'stable, non-life threatening injuries'.

"I never expected this" Leanne said. "I feel like we're all human, we make mistakes and I learned my lesson. Anybody can reach out. I'm not the first, and if they don't move the fence, I'm probably not going to be the last,' she added.

Wilkerson, the passer-by who helped her, said: "This zoo in particular is a lot more open in terms of how close you can get to these animals."

Speaking to the New York Times, he described the barrier as 'a little bit above waist height' for him. He said that it was 'more of a reach than a climb' by Leanne, but he did state that they would be safe for anyone not reaching over them.

He added: "Common sense would say that that would probably not be a good idea."

Maybe they should start by no longer letting stupid people into the zoo.

Ding Ding Ding we have a winner!!!!!

Common sense is sadly lacking in most people, they just wonder around as "educated stupid people". They have all the right credentials but not a lick of common sense, wisdom or knowledge, just like Absolutely Occasionally-used Cortex (AOC). I blame modern medicine for keeping the "hold my beer" people alive and breeding, after they have proven that mother nature wants to Clorox them from the gene pool.

:yeahthat:

She basically admits that they need to idiot proof the place for idiots like herself?

It's their fault, not hers of course?

Stupid animal rights whack a doodle got exactly what she deserved.

Great idea! I recommend a short test before allowing the public to be in proximity to wild animals. Lately, it seems that so many people treat zoos and wildlife parks as if they were Disneyland.

I know it would never happen, but I think it would be awesome to have a list made up called the Darwin Menu where all the idiots who decide that they can commune with wild animals up close and personal and then get the losing end of the deal get put on the Menu with a action that led to their demise/brush with death as the description of their 'dish'.

So I had to see for myself how far this fence was from the barrier. Initially I assumed she had climbed over a barrier and walked up to a fence and was attacked. After watching the video, I was kind of shocked in this day and age they literally only had a brick landscaping wall separating visitors. I'm sure she'll get a nice little check and they'll have to spend some money putting more barrier in between the people and that beautiful cat.

How about letting stupid people "into Africa?" LOL.

I have pet (petted?) cheetahs and hyenas in Kenya, played with baby lions in South Africa, stood next to a rhino in a game park in Senegal, and went into a lion enclosure (with the gamekeeper) on a military base in Botswana. (The Botswana Defence Force keeps them to get horses that they use in their mounted cavalry that patrols the bush acclimatized to wild animals.) Why did I do it? Because they said I could and to get the photo.

Luckily Darwin hasn't caught up with me yet. I have also changed jobs, so the opportunities for me to do stupid <censored> are much reduced. One of my co-workers, however, was bit by a hyena in Bots. He is one of those people that things just happen to.

Maybe they should have a special exhibit of stupid people at the zoo.

It’s like visiting Niagara Falls (Canada side). Just a waist high wall seperates the public from this spectacular wonder, and inside the caves, just a chain. There are “DANGER!” signs posted that some choose to ignore. They could make it idiot proof, which would ruin the experience for everyone or keep it vulnerable to dare devil, idiots, and the hopelessly depressed.

The photos without water are amazing. (Sorry for being off topic, but it is cool.)
