    A woman in her 30ies got injured when she tried to take a selfie with a jaguar at Wildlife World Zoo in Arizona. She had climbed a barrier to get closer to the big cat, but the female jaguar didn't seem to like the idea, so she clawed the woman's arm instead. A woman was trying to take a selfie with a jaguar when it attacked her, authorities say
    I hope nothing will be done to the jaguar, it's not its fault when someone is stupid enough to try to get too close to a wild animal, even if its at a zoo. There are a reason why there are barriers, both for the sake of the animals, as well as the visitors. Shouldn't a person in her 30ies know that wild animals don't act like pets when getting too close? And why the need to take selfies at dangerous places?

    I'm glad the Jaguar is going to be spared.

    Horrible to think that wonderful creature would be penalized for incredible stupidity and lack of respect for a wild animal protecting itself

    The woman needs to be charged with trespassing or some other crime for climbing over the barrier.

    Happy to hear the jaguar will not be killed because a stupid human broke into its living quarters.

    The question is will this woman sue the zoo because she was attacked? People do crazy things!

    the key word is 'wild'
    they don't belong caged up in zoos where stupid people with a camera phone can exploit them IMO

    she should be sued herself for harassing the jaguar and putting the people who saved her at risk
    and just generally for stupidity IMO

    Remember when the 7 or 8 year old kid jumped into the gorilla cage? He dragged him about like a rag doll through his little ponds of water? They killed that gorgeous animal even though people argued that his dragging the kid was an act of protecting him from the screaming crowd. So glad this cat was spared. Procreation should require an aptitude test.

    At least she feels bad for her downright stupidity. Why doesn't these kind of news get popular and make people have some grip on sense and not get too close to wild animals.

    I see it all of the time at Yellowstone National Park, people try to get closer for pictures. These are not pets! And if anything happens, the animal is euthanized.
