WEST PALM BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) — A tiger that killed a Palm Beach zoo employee died during a surgical procedure.

Nancy Nill, an associate curator at The Palm Beach Zoo, said that Hati, their 14-year-old Malayan tiger, underwent surgery last week for “irritations in his guts.” On Thursday, the tiger stopped breathing during a second surgery and couldn’t be revived. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

The 350-pound tiger, who was known to be aggressive and territorial, fatally injured zookeeper Stacy Konwiser on April 15, 2016, after she walked into a caged area called a “night house.”
