A lion has been shot dead after mauling a 22-year-old woman to death at a wildlife conservatory in the United States.
It’s believed the lion got loose from a locked space during a routine enclosure clean at the North Carolina centre.
The woman was a recent University graduate, who had been employed at the centre for around two weeks.

It’s been reported that a team lead by a professionally trained animal keeper was carrying out the enclosure clean on Sunday when the lion somehow got loose and attacked the woman.
