The woman, who hasn't been identified, was allegedly trying to take a selfie when she crossed a barrier meant to keep visitors back from the animal's enclosure at Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park on Saturday.

The jaguar that attacked an Arizona woman - who jumped a barrier to snap a selfie with the feline - will not be euthanized, zoo officials said Sunday. "If it bleeds through, just put another one on top of that, OK?" the operator told her. Now she's apologizing for the incident. While standing right next to the jaguar enclosure, the cat reached through the cage and pinned the woman, piercing her arm with its claw.

Adam Wilkerson, who witnessed the incident along with his mother, said he and his mother heard the woman screaming and ran to help her when they realized what was happening.
