A zookeeper has been killed by a tiger at Hamilton Zoo in New Zealand this morning, according to Sydney Morning Herald.
Emergency Services were called to the zoo just after 11am to treat a woman reported to have been critically injured after being attacked by a tiger.
Senior Sergeant Juliet Burgess, from the Waikato District Command Centre, said "sadly the staff member who was attacked by the tiger has died at the scene".
"This is a tragic incident," she said.
"It is too early to determine exactly what's happened."
Hamilton Police were working with Hamilton Zoo staff and Worksafe NZ to investigate.
