An update on a story where a worker at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Clay County was injured by a tiger today (Friday).
The tiger was moved to a holding cage so that the main cage could be cleaned but the door to the holding area did not get shut all the way, allowing the tiger back into the main area.
The tiger bit and held onto the head of 21-year-old Marissa Dub.
Other employees distracted the tiger and were able to coax her back to the holding area with meat.
The Dubb was flown to Wishard Hospital in Indianapolis where she is expected to make a full recovery.
