A lion has killed one person at a private big cat park near Fresno, California, police say.
Fresno County officials say they responded to reports of an animal attack at Project Survival's Cat Haven.
A California fire department spokesman said a person who got into a cage with the lion was attacked and fatally injured. Local TV stations said the person worked at the preserve.
The lion is believed to have died after responding officers fired shots.
Cat Haven is about 45 miles (75km) east of Fresno.
The project opened in 1993, and has housed numerous big cats, including tigers, leopards and other species.
