A local woman was bitten by a Florida panther at Sue Arnold’s Wildlife Center on Monday.

“We believe the incident was the result of keeper error,” said Florida Wildlife Commission spokesperson Gabriella Ferrara.

She explained that the woman-who had been volunteering at the shelter for three years-violated the facility’s written procedures by entering the cage.

She said Sue Arnold was not on the property at the time of the incident.
