Summary: 

Doctors were able to save the arm of an Oklahoma zoo worker after a tiger bit it Saturday, according to the zoo's Facebook page. "She has a long road of repairs ahead of her but this is a miracle," the post said. The unidentified employee, whose name was not released, was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition after surgery, said Undersheriff Jim Mullett of Garvin County, about 40 miles south of Oklahoma City. She was awake and speaking on the phone later Saturday, the zoo said.
