INDICE DE GALERIAS
FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) — A zookeeper at a Utah amusement park has been hospitalized after being gored in the leg by a wildebeest.
Paramedics responded to a report of the goring Sunday at the Lagoon amusement park in Farmington, about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City.
Farmington Fire Chief Guido Smith says a 28-year-old female employee was gored during a feeding process, when she “came in contact with the animal’s horn.” He says she suffered an injury to her thigh.
Smith says the woman was transported to a trauma center in Salt Lake City, where she was in serious but stable condition.
Lagoon amusement park spokesman Adam Leishman says the park keeps a number of exotic cats, bison, deer, warthogs and other animals.
Davis County sheriff’s Sgt. Susan Poulsen says Utah Occupational Safety and Health officials are looking into the workplace accident.
