Zookeeper hospitalized after tiger attack at Topeka Zoo

A tiger mauled a zookeeper at the Topeka Zoo in north-eastern Kansas on Saturday.

"We're still evaluating. The tiger is holding", the representative says.

The incident, which lasted under 10 minutes, occurred while the zoo was open to the public and others witnessed it. Molly Hadfield, a spokesperson for the city of Topeka, told CBS News the zoo shut down for 45 minutes but has reopened.

Sanjiv, a male Sumatran tiger who arrived at the zoo in August 2017, attacked a keeper at the Topeka Zoo.

The zoo's director, Brendan Wiley, said the zoo's primary keeper is in stable condition.

Wiley did not expressly say that the zoo keeper did anything wrong. Nearby staff members responded to the scene to secure the tigers, and an official made the decision to temporarily close the zoo. The keeper does regularly go into the enclosure to clean up after the tigers.

The zookeeper suffered lacerations and puncture wounds to the back of the head, neck and back. Officials say there is no instance when a zookeeper and a tiger should be in the same area at the same time.

The site reports that Shawnee County Dispatch were called just after 9.30am local time following reports of a tiger attack.

The Topeka Zoo is reopened for normal business hours, however, the tigers are not on display Saturday.

Sanjiv, a male Sumatran tiger, joined us at the Topeka Zoo this evening as a recommendation from AZA's Species Survival.

At the press conference, Wiley reiterated, "While this incident is very unfortunate, he (Sanjiv) did what a wild tiger does".

A notification was put out to all zoo staff after the attack.

Sumatran tigers normally weight between 165 and 308 pounds.
