SPRING HILL, Fla. (AP) — Officials say a woman was gored in the eye by a deer at a Tampa Bay area wildlife sanctuary.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office reports that a woman called 911 Friday morning, saying that her 75-year-old sister had been injured at the Survival Outreach Sanctuary. An ambulance was sent to the sanctuary, but the woman’s condition was not immediately available.

Last week, a 150-pound female lion escaped its enclosure at the sanctuary and had to be tranquilized.

According to the sanctuary’s website, it houses large cats, wolf dogs and other wildlife.
