The condition of a northwest suburban animal handler, mauled by a tiger in Indiana, has been upgraded.
23-year-old Marissa Dub of Streamwood was working Friday at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center, about 50 miles southwest of Indianapolis.
Workers moved the tiger to a holding area while Dub cleaned its cage.
But an improperly closed door allowed the tiger to escape and bite Dub on the head.
Workers sprayed the cat with a water hose, then lured it out of the cage using meat.
Dub was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital in critical condition.
She was upgraded today to serious condition.
