There is a very good reason that animals in the zoos are cooped up inside.
It should not be necessary to remind you, but on Saturday evening it was still wrong in the Wildlife World Zoo in the u.s. state of Arizona, where a woman was attacked by a jaguar.
It writes among other CNN news and KPHO.
Shawn Gilleland from the Rural Metro Fire Department tells the media that the woman, who is in the 30's, passed afspærringerne to take a selfie at the jaguar enclosure, as a hunjaguar stuck the paw out and went to attack on her arm.

'the Guest sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the arm from one of our hunjaguarer. At the family's request was emts summoned. The animal was at no time out of its enclosure... please respect afspærringerne. We send a prayer to the family in the night, wrote the Wildlife World Zoo on Twitter after the attack.

A witness, Adam Wilkerson, who stayed in the zoo together with his family, tells how he saw a woman come running around a corner and yell at the help.
- I had no idea what I would get to see, I just ran there. I saw the other girl up the fence, with his arm in jaguarens claws. I could see the nails down into the skin itself at her, telling Adam Wilkerson.
According to him gave the jaguar the first drop, when his mother threw a water bottle into the enclosure to distract the animal.
CNN is in possession of an emergency call from the incident, where a zoo employee, according to the media says that the woman's arm is in a pretty critical condition'.
'She has pain, really big pain', says, among other things from the employees in the recording.
Wildlife World Zoo has subsequently assured its followers that the person hunjaguar will not be killed as a result of the incident.
We can promise you nothing will happen to our jaguar. She's a wild animal and there were proper barriers in place to keep our guests safe - not a wild animals fault when barriers are crossed. Still sending prayers to her and her family.— Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium & Safari Park (@ZooWildlife) March 10, 2019
