Numerous news reports and research papers in the past have stated that taking selfies on da-ngerous locations lead to many casualties. But, it seems, the da-ngerous trend is not ending anytime soon. A woman was mauled by a fully-grown jaguar after she climbed over a barricade of an Arizona zoo to take a selfie with the wild animal. As reported by The Sun, the incident took place at the Wildlife World Zoo in Pheonix, Arizona, and visitors heard the vi-ctim “screaming for help” as the jaguar at-tacked her.
The animal, reportedly, at-tacked the woman when she entered its enclosure by climbing over a barricade. Footage of the incident, which has now gone viral on social media, shows the woman bl-eeding with several lacerations on her arm.
Luckily, the woman managed to escape the enclosure in just a few minutes without suffering any life th-reatening in-juries.
The at-tack is now being probed by the zoo officials and an invrstigation has been ordered to check how the woman managed to enter the jaguar enclosure.
“We regret to inform that this evening, before closing there was an incident reported involving a guest, who crossed over the barrier to get a photo, according to eyewitnesses,” Wildlife World Zoo said in a statement.
The zoo added that the woman suffered in-juries to her arm from a female jaguar. After the at-tack, paramedics were called to check on the woman at the request of her family members. According to the zoo officials, at no point was the Jaguar out of its enclosure
