Lion put down after mauling woman to death – Dan Simon reports

FROM CNN WIRES:

It was clear that Dianna Hanson was thrilled to be at the Cat Haven sanctuary. Her Facebook page boasted more pictures of lions and tigers than it did of her friends.

Hanson had been at the 100-acre wooded Northern California facility since January– working as an intern, bonding with the big cats it's home to.

On Wednesday, the 24-year-old Seattle woman was killed when she was mauled by a 5-year-old, 350-pound African lion inside a cage.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Dan Simon reports on the latest in the attack.
