When the torch passed by the zoo, handlers brought the cats out to be photographed. Shortly after, as she was being moved, Juma attempted to escape.
Soldiers tried to put her down with four tranquilizer darts, but they took too long to take effect. When Juma turned on one of the zoo's veterinarians, she was shot dead. Colonel Luiz Gustavo Evelyn said:
"To protect the handler, it was sacrificed."
The military says they are investigating the incident further.
Sweden isn't sure what it did to get Donald Trump's attention.
The president discussed recent terrorist attacks during a Florida campaign rally (kill us now) on Saturday, and raised eyebrows by referencing a mysterious event that took place in Sweden on Friday night.
"You look at what's happening in Germany. You look at what's happening last night in Sweden — Sweden — who would believe this? Sweden, they took in large numbers, they are having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what's happening Brussels, you look at what's happening all over the world."
The comment about "last night in Sweden" went viral, prompting mass confusion over what happened in the Nordic country on Friday night.
So, to set things straight, Swedish tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet published a timeline of what really went down on the night in question -- and, no, the eventful evening didn't include terrorist attacks.
