SANCTUARY TO REOPEN The owner of a wildlife sanctuary that closed after last month’s fatal mauling of a big-cat handler plans to reopen the facility next week. Lori Ensign had said she likely never would reopen Safari’s Sanctuary after Peter Getz died of injuries he received when a lion-tiger hybrid attacked him during feeding time. But Ensign said Thursday she and her staff are ready to reopen Nov. 29. Getz, 32, died after the liger gashed him in the neck Oct. 29. He had opened the cage to feed the cat, which is a violation of rules, reports show. Ensign said the cat will not be euthanized.
