A staff member from Carole Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue is lucky to be alive. Per TMZ, one of the tigers at the animal sanctuary bit their arm and hand, resulting in a severe injury.
They state, “One of their longtime volunteers, a woman named Candy Couser, stuck her hand into the enclosure of Kimba the tiger, to open the door … and Kimba bit into her hand and started thrashing.”
Candy’s arm was nearly torn off at the shoulder, and emergency workers had to transport her to the hospital. She is still expected to survive.
