Jaguars kill zookeeper.

THREE jaguars mauled a zoo keeper to death when she went in their cage to feed them yesterday.

Horrified children saw one beast clamp its jaws round the 21-year-old's neck as two more joined in. Witness Juergen Mueller said: "It was like a bloodied rag doll."

The director of the zoo in Vienna had an arm badly mauled when he got in the cage to try to save the keeper. It is thought a gate to lock away the cats when they are fed was left open.
