After her capture, these national park rangers planned to release her into a preserve where she could hunt out of the way of residents. However, she wasn’t ready to leave her cage.
One of the rangers beings to prod the angry cat, only enraging her further. Suddenly, she bolts from the cage and whips around to attack the ranger. The ranger attempts to escape into a truck, but the cat was too fast. via Animal Planet
