INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — On the day of this most recent London terror attack, our own Patty Spitler was on her way there.

Patty — whose shows Pet Pals and Boomer TV air here on WISH-TV — wasn’t even sure if she’d make it to London.

And she said some urged her to cancel the trip.

But she went forward with it anyway, and after some delay arrived safely.

She told me she found no sense of fear among the Londoners.

In fact, she said it was just the opposite:

Everybody has been lovely as they say here. Wonderful. And you see international flavor here as you would in New York or any major city. And I’m not seeing any fear at all, which I was quite frankly surprised about, because I was worried.”

LONDON (AP) – Police said a tiger killed a female zookeeper Monday at Hamerton Zoo Park 80 miles north of London.

“A tiger had entered an enclosure with a keeper. Sadly the female zookeeper died at the scene,” Cambridgeshire Police said in a statement.

The zoo said in a statement that a “freak accident” was to blame for the death. It said, “Our thoughts and sympathies are with our colleagues, friends and families at this dreadful time.”

Hamerton Zoo posted a statement on its website saying staff members were too “distressed” to speak the media about the death. The zoo is expected to be closed Tuesday while an investigation continues.

Police said they were called to the zoo late Monday morning.

The tiger never escaped from the enclosure, and police said foul play was not suspected in the keeper’s death.

Visitors were evacuated when the incident began and an air ambulance was summoned to provide emergency help for the victim.

An eyewitness says visitors were removed calmly and that there was no panic.

Police did not release information about the tiger.
