A lion at a wildlife park near Fresno California has killed a 26 year old woman who was interning at the park.
Officials from the Cat Haven wildlife sanctuary were not available for comment, but local media say the woman was attacked after entering a lion enclosure.
Condolence messages were left on the sanctuary's Facebook page with one person expressing sympathy for the loss of the employee and for a male lion named Cous Cous.
Police say they plan to perform an autopsy on the animal to determine if it suffered any health problems that could have caused the attack.
