Puma Kills 7-Year-Old Boy In Peru, Zoo Blames Parents (VIDEO)

A 7-year-old boy died Tuesday after a puma at a zoo in Peru ripped off his arm. The boy died in the hospital.

Authorities have ordered a review of the zoo's safety measures, but the zoo's managers are accusing the family of "negligence" as the boy was allowed to put his hand through the fence into the puma's enclosure.
