Lion Kills Santuary Volunteer who Snuck into Cage, Deputies Kill Lion

Entry into the big cat cages at the facility is strictly verboten.

The dead volunteer is 24 y.o. Dianna Hanson. She was two months into her internship program at the Cat Haven in Dunlap, Ca., and is now a candidate for the Darwin Award.
"(The deceased's father) said his daughter loved to be around big cats and working with them was her true passion in life.

Dianna Hanson was inside the cat enclosure when a 4-year-old male African lion named Cous Cous attacked her around 12:30 p.m., officials said. It was not immediately clear what Hanson was doing inside the closure, or what prompted the attack...

"The lion was shot and killed per our safety protocols," Dale Anderson, founder and executive director of Project Survival Cat Haven, which manages Cat Haven, said Wednesday."
How sad; what a waste: She loved big cats so much that she endangered her own life, and the lion's life, to the point of it being killed simply for being a lion.
