A man who was there with his family told local media that he heard a woman yelling for help. "And she was holding it, her other arm, with her hand attached to the paw, just screaming, screaming, screaming to get out", witness Adam Wilkerson said. At that moment, I grabbed the girl around the torso and pulled her away from the cage and it unlatches from her claw. Wilkerson's mother was able to distract the jaguar by shoving a bottle of water into the cage.
Zoo director Mickey Ollson said it was the second time the big cat had swiped at someone, with a similar incident occurring when a guest got too close to the fence line. The jaguar has been taken out of the exhibit while the zoo investigates, but officials insist the animal won't be put down because it was not at fault, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner. The bottle distracted the jaguar, and it let go of the victim.
Witnesses told zoo officials the woman had "crossed over the barrier" to get her picture.
