A South Florida zookeeper attacked by a Malayan tiger last week died of a neck injury, a medical examiner said.
Palm Beach County Medical Examiner Michael Bell told local media outlets Wednesday about 37-year-old Stacey Konwiser's fatal neck injury but wouldn't say whether the veteran Palm Beach Zoo worker was bitten or clawed.
An autopsy report hasn't been made public.
Konwiser was killed Friday when a 13-year-old male tiger attacked her in an enclosure known as the night house, where tigers sleep and are fed, authorities said. The tiger was tranquilized and has since recovered.
The zoo was closed over the weekend and reopened Monday.
Authorities from local, state and federal agencies are investigating what led to Friday's deadly attack.
Zoo officials released a statement after the incident saying they were "saddened beyond what words can describe at this incident and tragic outcome."
