A married zookeeper couple were viciously attacked by a rhinoceros at Hellbrunn Zoo in Austria early Tuesday morning. The woman did not survive the attack, and her partner was injured during his attempt to save her. 

The 33-year-old woman was tasked with putting insect repellent on the rhino’s body to protect its sensitive skin from insect bites, Zoo Director Sabine Grebner shared with reporters.

The reason why Jeti, the 30-year-old female rhino, attacked the zookeeper remains unclear, Austria’s APA news agency reported. 

“Maybe there was some kind of irritation. We are deeply upset and shocked,” Grebner shared.
