(CENTER POINT) - A woman badly injured in a tiger attack at a western Indiana animal refuge has resumed working part-time at the refuge.

23-year-old Marissa Dub suffered severe head, neck and vocal cord injuries in the June 21 attack at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center near Center Point, Ind.

The Streamwood, Ill., woman experienced multiple strokes and lost all movement on one side of her face following the attack.

But Dub tells WLS-TV she's not angry at the tiger and insists it was just trying to play when it attacked after she mistakenly left a cage gate open.

Center director Joe Taft says Dub is back working part-time at the center.

Dub says she loves her "relationships with the cats, even if they are bad relationships."
