A New Zealand zookeeper was mauled to death by a Sumatran tiger on Sunday at the Hamilton Zoo. 

Authorities told the New Zealand Herald emergency services were called to the zoo at 11 a.m. local time after reports 43-year-old Samantha Kudeweh had been attacked by one of the zoo’s five tigers, a male named Oz. Police said Kudeweh died at the scene. 

Kudeweh is believed to have been killed by the tiger when the enclosure was being cleaned. 

Visitors were asked to leave the zoo. Officials said the zoo would be closing its doors until Thursday. Authorities are investigating to find out what exactly happened. 

Adam Rich, a zoo visitor, told The New Zealand Herald that he saw the tigers Sunday morning and noticed a female zookeeper opening up a gate for them toward an outdoor enclosure. 

Rich said that about 45 minutes to an hour later, zoo staff came up and asked him to leave the premises. He said they were offering all visitors a refund. 

The tiger that attacked the zookeeper is named Oz and is the only adult male tiger at the zoo. Officials said that all animals remained in their enclosures during the incident. 

Zoo officials have decided Oz will not be euthanized following the incident.
