A worker whose arm was mauled by a tiger at a central Oklahoma wild animal park has returned to her job.
Kelci Saffery was attacked Oct. 6 when she stuck her arm into a tiger enclosure. She was able to pull her arm out, but only after the tiger ripped her flesh. Saffery airlifted to a hospital for treatment.
Over the weekend, Saffery returned to her duties Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood.
Saffery hasn't spoken publicly about the incident. Oklahoma City television station KOCO reports that she earlier issued a statement in which she took responsibility for the incident.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is investigating.
