DUNLAP, Calif. (AP) — A California animal sanctuary where an African lion killed a 24-year-old intern reopened to the public Sunday with the support of the victim’s family.

Cat Haven, a private zoo run by the nonprofit Project Survival, observed a moment of silence at noon for Dianna Hanson, who was fatally attacked by the 550-pound male lion Wednesday.

Cat Haven founder Dale Anderson said the park was returning to normal operations.
