Sheriff’s officials say the animal that killed an employee this weekend at an Oregon animal sanctuary was a cougar, and an autopsy shows the woman died of multiple bite wounds.
Dr. Christopher Young of the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office said Monday that 36-year-old Renee Radziwon of Portland had “devastating injuries in the critical areas of head and neck.”
Radziwon died Saturday night inside an enclosure at WildCat Haven in Sherwood, where she was the head keeper.
The sanctuary said in a statement Sunday that while protocol calls for more than one worker inside an enclosure containing an animal, Radziwon was apparently alone.
Radziwon’s mother told The Associated Press her daughter had expressed concerns about safety measures at the sanctuary before the attack.

Tacoma police today arrested two suspects in the killing and robbery of a 54-year-old Tacoma man in a condominium parking garage last month.
Community tips and surveillance footage led police to the two Tacoma men, who are suspected of following Lawrence Howse into the garage, robbing and killing him, Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.
The suspects were booked on suspicion of first-degree robbery and first-degree murder, Cool said. More arrests are expected in connection with the case, she said.
Police say the killing was random and the suspects had no relationship to Howse.

Tacoma detectives are asking the public to help identify the two men suspected of robbing and killing a 54-year-old Tacoma man in a parking garage this weekend, a police news release says.
Around 9:55 p.m. Saturday, the victim, Lawrence Howse, drove into the gated parking garage of Sky Terrace Condominiums in the 200 block of S. Broadway in a black BMW, the release said. The two suspects followed him in on foot, where they robbed and killed him, the release said.
Detectives believe the Howse was randomly targeted by the two suspects, according to the release.
Anyone with information in the case is asked to call 911.

SPOKANE – Authorities in Washington say the vehicle of a Spokane woman killed with her two young sons has been found, but the main suspect’s still on the loose and is believed to be armed with stolen handguns and rifles.
Police say they’re looking for 22-year-old Dustin W. Gilman in connection with Friday’s killing of 32-year-old Tracy Ann Ader and her 8- and 10-year-old sons at their home, where Gilman had been staying as a family friend.
Tracy Ader’s husband was in the hospital at the time with a medical condition.
Police say Gilman took off in Ader’s Nissan Pathfinder, which was found Sunday afternoon at a convenience store parking lot in Spokane.
