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".

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.
