TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Officials say a Kansas zookeeper who was attacked by a Sumatran tiger is out of intensive care.

Topeka city spokeswoman Mally Hadfield says the woman is stable and was moved Sunday to a different unit of the hospital. The woman’s name hasn’t been released, and Hadfield says her family is requesting privacy.

The 7-year-old male tiger, named Sanjiv, attacked the woman Saturday morning in his outdoor habitat as several visitors watched. The tiger was lured away so the injured zookeeper could receive emergency aid.
