Zookeeper, Stacey Konwiser, dies after tiger attack at Florida zoo

A female zookeeper was killed after being attacked by a Malayan tiger at the Palm Beach Zoo on Friday, a zoo official said.
The attack occurred in a hidden area where tigers eat and sleep at around 2 p.m. local time, zoo spokeswoman Naki Carter said.
The tiger was subdued with a tranquilizer and officials treated the injured woman who was rushed to St. Mary's Medical Center but later died from her injuries, Carter said.
The victim, Stacey Konwiser, 38, had just reached her three-year anniversary at the zoo, where her husband is also a keeper, Carter said.
