 ‘Sadly all the help came too late. The woman died at the scene,’ Zurich police spokeswoman Judith Hoedl said.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

Hoedl said an investigation has been launched into why the keeper was in the enclosure at the same time as the tiger.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

Irina was born in 2015 at a zoo in the Danish city of Odense and transferred to Zurich a year ago, according to Zurich’s zoo director Severin Dressen.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

The tiger behaved normally, he said. ‘Our full sympathy is with the relatives of the victim,’ Dressen said, adding that the keeper had been a long-term member of the zoo staff.(Wapbaze_Copyright)
