AUSTRALIA – A zookeeper in Australia is in critical condition after being mauled by two lions Friday.

Lions attached the 35-year-old woman as she was cleaning out their enclosures at the Shoalhaven Zoo, about 100 miles from Sydney.

Paramedics found the woman unconscious in the lion enclosure. She was then airlifted to a Sydney hospital in “a critical but stable condition,” police said.

The zoo was not open at the time of the incident due to the coronavirus pandemic.
