An inquest into the death of zookeeper Rosa King, who was mauled by a tiger at Hamerton Zoo Park near Huntingdon, will take place in next July.
A jury is expected to sit on the full hearing, which is scheduled to take place in July.
A pre-inquest review was held in Huntingdon on Friday, which set out key witnesses and the type of evidence that will be given when the inquest is resumed.
It is expected to take nine days to complete and will be held at Huntingdon Town Hall.
Ms King, 33, died from “traumatic injuries” in the incident which happened at the zoo on May 29, 2017.
