A Florida zookeeper died after being injured by a tiger.
"She cared greatly for tigers. I kind of referred to her as a tiger whisperer. ... They spoke to each other in a language only they could understand," a zoo spokesperson said at a press conference.
Newsy's partners at WPTV say details of what happened behind the scenes while the trainer was interacting with the tiger are still under investigation.
