(Newser) – Terrible news out of northwest Oregon, where a wildcat attacked and killed a woman at an animal sanctuary near Portland last night. The woman's name hasn't been released, but fire and rescue officials told local outlets she was 35 years old and an employee at the WildCat Haven sanctuary. Fire and rescue crews had difficulty getting to the woman because she was inside an enclosure. And that enclosure not only held the cat that attacked the woman, but several other wildcats.
