The woman was transported to to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Rural Metro Fire Department. "Sending prayers to the family tonight". Paramedics said she had lacerations on one of her arms, the Arizona Republic reported.
Others thanked the zoo for protecting the jaguar, who was just trying to defend her territory.
The park will consider putting in place additional barriers to avoid similar incidents.
The details of the attack, that she climbed into the animal's enclosure, has Twitter very much on the side of the jaguar, while her intellect and sanity is questioned.
Mickey Ollson, the owner of the zoo, confirmed that the same jaguar scratched another guest who had crossed the barrier to its enclosure, saying "there's no way to fix people crossing barriers".
Adam Wilkerson captured the aftermath of the attack on video.
She was left with injuries and required medical attention, according to a tweet sent from the zoo's official account. "I see another girl with her up against the cage of the jaguar and the jaguar has clasped its claws outside of the cage around her hand and into her flesh".
However, officials will be checking into whether more barriers need to be put in place.
This is not the first time the female jaguar has hurt a park visitor. They said the jaguar has been removed from the exhibit, and will not be euthanized. "But again, when people do not respect the barriers, there's always a chance there might be a problem". "Not a wild animal's fault when barriers are crossed".
