SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a lion has killed someone at a private animal sanctuary in Central California.

Cal Fire spokesman Ryan Michaels told The Associated Press that a person who got into a cage with the lion was attacked and fatally injured at the Cat Haven sanctuary in Dunlap, Calif., about 45 miles east of Fresno in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

Michaels says he thinks the lion was put down because law enforcement officers at the scene fired shots, and the Fresno County sheriff’s office said on the radio that the animal had been secured.
