Aug. 9: Zoo Worker Is Seriously Injured in Lion Attack


At Québec’s Granby Zoo, a worker was performing the morning preparation routine in the lion den when one of the three lions attacked her. A co-worker sprayed the lion with water from a hose and managed to keep the animal away from the injured worker. She was taken to the hospital in stable condition, but with severe injuries, including a cervical fracture. The zoo is investigating the circumstances of the attack.
