INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A woman who was attacked by a tiger at a western
Indiana exotic feline refuge has been upgraded to serious condition.
Wishard Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Natalie Moya says 21-year--old
Marissa Dub was in the intensive care unit on Saturday, a day after being
brought to the Indianapolis hospital in critical condition. The Clay
County Sheriff's Department said Dub was cleaning a cage at the Exotic
Feline Rescue Center in Center Point, about 60 miles southwest of
Indianapolis, when she was attacked after a cage door was left open.
The sheriff's department said the tiger is an 18-year-old male named Raja.
The feline center was open to the public at the time, but no visitors were
in the area when the attack occurred.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is investigating.
