Rhino bites off woman’s finger at Denver Zoo
DENVER, Colo. — A woman lost her finger to a rhinoceros at the Denver Zoo during an animal feeding session for visitors.
The zoo suspended the feeding program indefinitely following Wednesday’s incident. The program allowed guests to pay an extra $60 to touch and feed a rhino.
Zoo officials say they don’t believe the rhino was trying to harm the woman.
“We don’t believe this was an aggressive action, just a terrible and unfortunate accident,” they said.
The rhinoceros has been living in the Denver Zoo since it was born in 1993.
