Wolves attack woman who was running in French zoo

A woman staying at a French zoo was attacked by several wolves on Sunday after entering a part of the zoo normally accessible only by car.

“Fortunately, the medical team intervened very quickly and we were able to save this person,” zoo CEO Christelle Bercheny said at a news conference.

The attack occurred at around 9:30 a.m. at the Thoiry zoological park in Yvelines, approximately 50 kilometers west of Paris, French affiliate TF1 said.

After spending the night in the park, the 37-year-old woman went for a run and accidentally entered the safari area, TF1 reported, adding that the area was a seven-hectare space where animals, wolves and bears roam freely.

TF1 said it was while she was running that the wolves “attacked” her, adding that she suffered “serious” injuries and was bitten on the neck, calf and back.

The woman was treated at the nearest hospital and her condition is “stable”, TF1 reported.

The zoo has launched an investigation into the case.
