Criminal case over zookeeper's killing by wolves

An employee at Kolmården Wildlife Park, south of Stockholm, is suspected of breaking health and safety laws, which led the death of a zookeeper in 2012, tabloid Expressen reports.

The zookeeper was killed by a pack of wolves after entering their enclosure. She had cared for the wolves since they were cubs.

A police spokesman says the suspicions could lead to a court case against the employee, but a lot of work still needs to be done in the case, according to Expressen.
