Florida zoo to reopen after deadly tiger attack

The South Florida zoo where a veteran keeper was attacked and killed by a Malayan tiger is reopening Monday as authorities from several local, state and federal agencies continue investigating what led to Friday’s deadly attack.
    
At a news conference Sunday, Palm Beach Zoo spokeswoman Naki Carter said doors open at 9 a.m. and that a fund has been created to support tiger conservation in honor of Stacey Konwiser, who was killed Friday when a 13-year-old male tiger attacked her in an enclosure known as the night house, where tigers sleep and are fed. The tiger was tranquilized and has since recovered. The zoo was closed over the weekend.
    
Carter declined comment on the ongoing investigation, but said zoo officials are not blaming the tiger for the attack.
