UPDATE: The Caswell County Sheriff Office has identified the victim who was attacked and killed by the Caswell County Lion.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE: A pet owner is dead after a lion came out of a compound and killed her, according to the Conservators Center in Caswell County.
The center said it had happened when a staffing team led by a professionally trained animal keeper did a routine cleaning job.
One of the lions somehow left a locked room and could be where the trainers were, quickly killing one person.
At that time, there was not a word about how the lion escaped from the locked enclosure.
Caswell County employees shot the lion to fetch the worker.
The name of the worker was not published.
The Conservators Center is closed until further notice.
