Our news led off with this story tonight, it appears she will probably lose the arm.....shame. Interesting to note the park will keep the lion, esp. since it was so recently that we had a lion nearby that killed the trainer, then the owner only a short time later. Hate to say it, but I think once they've attacked they may not be safe again.....not that big cats are ever "safe"...they ARE wild creatures! Since she was leading her family and boyfriend on the trip, I have to wonder if she wasn't a bit more...distracted, and it's hard to say what provokes an attack....still, I feel sorry for her....

I hope she keeps the arm, and that BGT doesn't end up regretting their decision to keep him alive.....just don't like the odds on either one.....

On a lighter note, I have to admit thinking the thread was going to be about the coaster, since I hadn't yet heard...
