Madrid zookeeper seriously injured after being attacked by 200kg gorilla


An animal keeper has been seriously injured at the Madrid Zoo after being attacked by a gorilla.

The 46-year-old woman reportedly suffered a head injury, chest trauma with multiple fractures and and two broken arms this morning.

She was stabilised at the scene before being rushed to the Madrid Clinical Hospital in a serious condition.

The Municipal Police of Madrid have taken over the investigation as it is classified as a work accident.

A statement just issued by the zoo said: “Given the event that occurred this morning with a gorilla keeper from the Madrid Zoo, we share our official note and our wishes for a speedy recovery for this worker.”

“The events took place this morning, around 10am when a keeper with 19 years of experience at the zoo accessed the indoor facilities for the usual breakfast routine, cleaning and preparing the facilities.”

“Upon entering a secure area with a triple door, the caretaker met Malabo, a 29-year-old male gorilla, who had accessed it. The reasons why the animal was able to access the area are being investigated internally. However, the judicial investigation will determine the exact details.”

The statement said the interior area in question had no exit to the public area.

The zoo said the emergency protocol was quickly activated, notifying the Samur emergency team and the municipal police.

“The Zoo team managed to remove the animal and later, the veterinary team anesthetised the animal with a tranquiliser dart, which was transferred to its interior bedroom and at the moment, it is calm,” the statement continued.

“Note that Malabo has been raised by his caregivers since he was born with a protective behaviour towards the group and close to his caregivers. At this time, the caregiver has a reserved prognosis and the first thing is to wish her speedy recovery.”

“Today, the gorilla facilities will remain closed so that both Malabo and the rest of the group are calm.”
