(KSEE) A woman is dead following a lion attack at the Project Rescue Cat Haven in Dunlap, California.

The employee, a female intern, was injured by the lion while inside its cage Wednesday afternoon.

Another employee tried but failed to distract the lion after the attack in an attempt to get him away the victim.

When deputies arrived, they felt it necessary to shoot and kill the animal, named Cous Cous, in order to help the injured woman.

She died at the scene.

The park was closed to the public at the time of the attack and remains closed at this time.
