DUNLAP, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say the intern fatally attacked by a lion at a California exotic animal park was talking with a co-worker on the phone in the moments before she was killed. Fresno County coroner David Hadden says the co-worker became concerned when the conversation ended abruptly and 24-year-old Dianna Hanson failed to call back. Hadden says Hanson was cleaning an enclosure when investigators believe the lion may have used its paw to lift a partially opened door of a smaller cage, but the investigation continues. The 550-pound lion broke Hanson’s neck with an apparent swipe of the paw. Hanson was from Brier, Wash.
