Fla. zookeeper killed by tiger violated protocol

Animal Health SmartBrief | Apr 25, 2016

The Palm Beach Zoo keeper recently killed by a Malayan tiger entered the animal's sleeping quarters while tigers had access to the area, a violation of zoo policy that prohibits humans from entering areas tigers can access, according to Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society President and CEO Andrew Aiken. It's not clear why the keeper was in the area at the time animals were free to enter, and the case is still under investigation. USA Today (04/23)
