According to entertainment director of the park and owner of the cats, Joe Schreibvogel, Saffery was in violation of proper safety protocol.
The young lady stuck her hand through the fence, and her sleeve was caught, according to Schreibvogel.
After surgery, Saffery was able to regain feeling in her fingers, and all but the tip of her right ring finger was saved. In a report from kfor.com, Saffery released a statement providing exoneration for her tiger friend. She admitted to breaking the rules and said the tiger grabbed her glove and pulled her in with his paws.
Only time will tell if these kitty cats will stay in their caged jungle in Wynnewood. Until then, if you choose to brave the exotic park that’s being talked about like it’s the beginning of a scary movie, keep your fingers and arms far away from the tiger pens.
