Meanwhile, witness Adam Wilkerson said, "The claws that were retracted were definitely outside of the cage and grasped around her hand, and she holding her other arm, with her arm attached to the paw just screaming, screaming, screaming, to get out", according to AzFamily.
Shawn Gilleland of the Rural Metro Fire Department told PEOPLE that the woman was transported to a hospital following the incident, where she was treat for lacerations to her arm and hand. The jaguar will not be put down.
Officials from the Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park replied to a woman who threatened to not return to the zoo if the female jaguar were to be put down stating, "She won't be put down".
The zoo, in another tweet, wrote that people need to understand "why barriers are put in place", adding it is "sending prayers to the family tonight". Instead, she framed the incident as a "crazy accident", CBS reported.
The zoo said that it will not euthanize the jaguar, saying "there were proper barriers in place" to keep everyone safe.
Aftermath: "This is the second time the female jaguar has swiped at someone this month", Wildlife World Zoo Director Mickey Ollson told ABC15.More news: Tottenham First Draw In Premier League Season

On Saturday, the woman tried to take a selfie with the jaguar when it attacked her arm.
"The jaguar lets go of the girl somewhat because the claw catches on just her sweater".
A spokeswoman said the injured visitor had returned to the facility and said she felt bad about the publicity it was getting.
"We can promise you nothing will happen to our jaguar".
"People get the mistaken idea that wild animals are approachable", Kitty Block said in a statement.
Michele Flores was at the zoo with her son and grandkids when she saw the attack.
The zoo sent another message on Sunday, assuring the public that "nothing will happen to our jaguar", and adding that it's "not a wild animal's fault when barriers are crossed".
