I saw this very quickly yesterday WS and it's very sad, I suppose the only good is that she didn't appear to suffer.
It will be interesting though if they follow this up with why she was in their, was she supposed to be there or not. Also if the Lion had any health issues that caused the attack. Cous Cous as they say was used to humans, in fact yesterday they said he had been hand raised since 4 weeks old, so it's kind of odd that he went for her but then again he was 4 yrs old so may be that had something to do with it. Whatever the findings it's incredibly sad because this young girl has lot her life and very young male lion has also lost his life.

She was supposed to be in the enclosure I saw the story on CNN News last night. She was tidying the large encosure up which was her job. Cus Cus was in a seperate pen, but somehow got put into the larger enclosure. The coroner said that he thought the Lion was more likely playing, and got to rough as he did'nt maul her.

It remains very sad that she lost her life WS and also at a very young age but just as sad that a lion has been killed for "playing". It really is a waste of two very young lives.

Tragic news for both for sure, and sadly accidents do happen, these animals are wild and always will be.

Tragic that this happened to the woman but regardless of how tame you think these animals might be they are not, they are wild animals with wild animal instincts that are built into them.
