Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad SadLionsWildlifeGame Of ThronesViral: Animals

A visual effects editor for 'Game of Thrones' was mauled to death by a lion in South Africa.

So, so sad.

On Monday, an American tourist was mauled to death by a lion at a South Africa wildlife park. Now, the woman has been identified as an editor for the hit TV series Game of Thrones.

Katherine Chappell — who preferred to go by Katie — was a visual effects editor for the fantasy show.

The 29-year-old was taking pictures from the passenger seat of an SUV, when all of a sudden a lion managed to pounce on her through an open window.

The park's assistant operations manager Scott Simpson said Katie and the other tourists weren't following proper procedures at the time of the attack:

"They had their windows all the way down, which is strictly against policy."

The lion had been surrounded by her cubs when she decided to lunge for Katie.

Her sister, Jennifer, took to Facebook to thank friends and family for their outpouring of support following the tragedy:

"We cannot thank everyone enough for the kind words and support. It means the world to us during this difficult time."

According to reports, this is the park's third attack in four months.

Exchange Student Gored By Bison At Yellowstone National Park

Oh no!

A Taiwanese student was visiting Yellowstone National Park when she was gored by a buffalo.

How awful!

The 16-year-old was trying to take a selfie with the animal near Old Faithful.

When she turned her back to snap the shot, the bison stabbed her.

The injuries were serious, but luckily they weren't life threatening.

The park then issued a statement reminding visitors to keep their distance from the wildlife. It read:

"Visitors are reminded that Yellowstone wildlife is wild. Wildlife should not be approached, no matter how tame or calm they appear."

So scary!

We're really glad the student's injuries aren't life threatening, and we hope she gets better soon!

It's not food! They're just swaddling baby bats so they look like burritos! No bat eating here. LOLz!

Sadly, during a recent heat wave, the bats were separated from their mother. Thankfully, the babies were rescued and have been receiving all the love and care they need.

The whole "love" part is apparently more important than you'd think too! These little babies need to be burrito'd so they feel safe and loved!

Everyone loves a good swaddling!

Check out the video (below) to see pure batty cuteness!!
