People have been leaving tributes to the Sarah McClay on the South Lakes Wild Animal Park Facebook page.
Many are defending the park's role in the incident and saying they will continue to visit.
This is just the BEST ZOO I've ever been to. You do such wonderful work. My thoughts are with you all and the girl's family.
Such tragic news. My thoughts are with everyone who knew and loved Sarah. Our family love your animal park, and will be back to visit soon. RIP Sarah.
My heart goes out to Sarah's family and friends and to David Gill and all the staff at the Zoo. You all do a fantastic job up there and all those working closely with the dangerous animals are well aware of the potential risks involved in their role as keeper.
