SHERWOOD, OR – There’s a risk when working with wild animals, because, well, they’re wild.
Remember when Roy from Siegfried & Roy was attacked by his tiger in front of an audience?
That messed him up pretty bad, but he survived.
Unfortunately the same can’t be said for a worker at an exotic cat sanctuary in Oregon.
The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office reports the 35-year-old woman died after being bitten and attacked by a big cat, although they’re not saying what kind of cat.
The Wildcat Haven Large Cat Sanctuary is a no-kill shelter that houses dozens of cougars, tigers, bobcats and other large, wild cats.
