UK police: Tiger that killed zookeeper has not been killed

The Hamerton Zoo Park deemed the incident as a "freak accident".

A Cambridgeshire Constabulary spokesman said: "A tiger had entered an enclosure with a keeper". A full investigation is now underway, according to zoo officials.

Officers attended a serious incident at Hamerton Zoo Park, Steeple Girding, at around 11.15am today.

"At no point during the incident did any animals escape their enclosures, and at no point was public safety affected in any way", the Facebook post added.

It said: "It has now been confirmed that zookeeper, Rosa King, has sadly been killed by a tiger in circumstances that are currently unclear".

Rosa wasn't just a keeper at Hamerton Zoo - she was Hamerton Zoo. Holmes said she and her family ducked into an office until an employee said it was safe to leave.

The review noted that "escape protocol should be amended to categorize animals of varying risks" and that the zoo's communication procedure in the event of an emergency wasn't good enough. Witnesses told The Telegraph that they heard screams and saw other keepers desperately trying to distract the tigers with meat. It "appears to have been a freak accident" and a full investigation is underway, the zoo said.

Our thoughts are with Rosa's family and friends at this devastating time. RIP.

He says these animals retain their natural instincts even if they have spent all their lives in captivity, so while a fatal encounter like the one at the Hamerton Zoo is tragic and unfortunate, Hanna says it is hard to place the blame on the tiger.
