A Topeka Zoo keeper was injured after being attacked by a tiger Saturday morning.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the incident happened around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, when a Sumatran tiger named Sanjiv attacked the worker in a secured, indoor space. Wiley said there was "no consideration" to euthanize the tiger.
The official said a few visitors reportedly witnessed the attack.
The entire Zoo was closed for approximately 45 minutes before all but the tiger enclosure was reopened. A spokeswoman for the City of Topeka previously told CNN that woman was "awake and alert" at the time she was taken to the hospital.
"There was some sort of error that occurred here", Mr Wiley said, adding the incident was under investigation. The female keeper, whose name has not yet been released, is in stable condition, but she suffered "lacerations and punctures" to her back, neck, head and arm, Wiley said.

He said that there are no plans to put the tiger down.
Zoo officials are not considering euthanizing Sanjiv. He said that were it not for the heroic actions of a number of other staff members, "this could have been a very different outcome".
After the animal arrived at Topeka, the zoo wrote on Facebook: "Sanjiv, a male Sumatran tiger, joined us at the Topeka Zoo this evening as a recommendation from AZA's Species Survival Plan".
The tiger was placed into a holding area and the tigers would not be on display for the rest of the day, Hadfield said.
Other officials say the two were in the outdoor habitat when the tiger recognized that the zookeeper was nearby and attacked.
