A lion killed a young worker at a wildlife conservatory Sunday after it got loose from a locked space, the center said.
Alexandra Black, 22, of New Palestine, Indiana, was killed Sunday after being attacked by the lion in an enclosure that was being cleaned at the Conservators Center, news outlets reported, citing a statement from the Caswell County Sheriff's Office.
The lion was shot and killed after attempts to tranquilize the animal failed, deputies said.
A "husbandry team" led by a professionally trained animal keeper was carrying out the routine cleaning when the lion somehow got loose, the center said in a statement.
It wasn't clear how the lion escaped the area that was supposed to be locked, said the center, which is closed until further notice.
Black had graduated from Indiana University in May with a degree in animal behavior, according to her LinkedIn page . She had been working at the conservatory for about two weeks, her family said.
The center said the lion was fatally shot to allow county personnel to retrieve Black.
