A representative from the Topeka Zoo says a male tiger injured a female keeper Saturday morning.

"As soon as Sanjiv recognized that he essentially tackled our keeper", Wiley told reporters, adding that humans and tigers should never be in a situation where they share the same space.

He confirmed that several visitors to the zoo had witnessed the attack.

The entire Zoo was closed for approximately 45 minutes before all but the tiger enclosure was reopened.

The tiger, named Sanjiv, and the zookeeper were in the "same place" Saturday when he attacked her, said Molly Hadfield, a spokeswoman for the City of Topeka.

Dame Emma Thompson has said she is "so happy" to join climate change campaigner Extinction Rebellion on a fifth day of protests . Demonstrators marched from the Spire on O'Connell Street to O'Connell Bridge, where they disrupted traffic for a number of hours.

The keeper was rushed to a nearby hospital following the attack by a tiger called Sanjiv and remains in critical condition. The other tigers at the zoo were put into their enclosure before being let back out. The female keeper, whose name has not yet been released, is in stable condition, but she suffered "lacerations and punctures" to her back, neck, head and arm, Wiley said. A firearms response team also was dispatched to the tiger exhibit, but zookeepers had successfully lured the tiger away by the time it arrived. "Sanjiv will continue to be a valuable and viable part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums species survival plan".

"Nothing is going to happen to our tiger", Ms Hadfield said.

Topeka Police are responding to the Topeka Zoo Saturday morning after reports of one person being attacked by a tiger.

Wiley went on to share that despite the "unfortunate incident", Sanjiv, who recently fathered 4 cubs, would not be euthanized. Sumatran tigers are critically endangered, and only about 400 remain in the wild, according to the World Wildlife Fund.
