Steven Eyre, who with wife Tracey knew Miss King from their regular visits to the zoo, said: "She was meticulous, she was very aware of the dangers, she would never have put herself at risk and we're all at a bit of a loss to understand what happened".

The zoo, which described the incident as a "freak accident", was heavily criticised in an inspection by officials in 2013 that forced it to make improvements. An investigation is underway and the zoo, 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of London, has been closed.

Hamerton Zoo called the fatal mauling a "freak accident".

"At no point during the incident did any animals escape their enclosures, and at no point was public safety affected in any way", the Facebook post added.

King's mother Andrea told the UK Press Association she had worked at the zoo for 14 years. "Sadly the female zookeeper died at the scene", the force said.

Distressed staff are said to have thrown meat into the enclosure in a desperate attempt to help Ms King during the incident yesterday morning.

Visitors were evacuated from the zoo following the tiger attack. At this point some of the keepers came running down the hill towards the next tiger enclosure.

"Rosa wasn't just a keeper at Hamerton Zoo - she was Hamerton Zoo", Chisholm added. Holmes said she and her family ducked into an office until an employee said it was safe to leave.

At no time did the animal escape from the enclosure.

The park is home to four tigers: Bengals, Shiva and Mohan as well as two Malaysian tigers, named Cicip and Sahaja, whom the zoo opened a new enclosure for in July past year.

"All our thoughts and sympathies are with our colleagues' friends and families at this terrible time", the zoo wrote.
