Dianna Hanson likely died quickly from a broken neck when she was attacked by a male lion as she cleaned his enclosure on Wednesday at Cat Haven, a big cat sanctuary in California. "The lion had been fed, the young woman was cleaning the large enclosure, and the lion was in the small cage. The gate of the cage was partially open, which allowed the lion called Cous Cous to lift it up with his paw," said Fresno County coroner David Hadden. Facility founder Dale Anderson said he could not discuss safety policies because of the ongoing investigation, but he said he is the only one permitted in an enclosure with lions there.
