Kaohsiung, Oct. 19 (CNA) Kaohsiung Shoushan Zoo said Monday it is
accepting a woman’s claim for compensation after her tooth was broken when an elephant hurled a stone at her on Oct. 10.
Zoo director Chuang Hsun-chih (莊絢智) said that when the 26-year-old woman complained to the zoo’s visitors’ center, her mouth was bleeding and her tooth was broken after being hit by the stone.
Chuang said the zoo is insured against such incidents and has referred the case to the insurance company, which has yet to determine the amount of compensation. [FULL STORY]
