Woman taunts lion after climbing into enclosure at Bronx Zoo
This action was a serious violation and unlawful trespass that could have resulted in serious injury or death. Barriers and rules are in place to keep both visitors, staff and animals safe

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


A woman climbed over a safety barrier at New York City’s Bronx Zoo last week and made her way into the lion exhibit, standing dangerously close to one of the animals.

The woman, standing a few feet away from a male lion, waved her hands and moved her body as if she was dancing. The incident was captured in photos and videos that were posted on Instagram.

It's unclear how long the woman stayed in the enclosure. There was a moat-like barrier between the lion and the area where the woman was standing, NBC New York reported.

No one was injured. In a statement, the zoo called the incident a violation and said it had filed a complaint for criminal trespass.

"This action was a serious violation and unlawful trespass that could have resulted in serious injury or death. Barriers and rules are in place to keep both visitors, staff and animals safe," the zoo told NBC New York. "We have a zero tolerance policy on trespass and violation of barriers."

A fool and her life are soon parted?  Stupidest.  Lady.  Ever.

Indeed.  Had she been mauled and/or killed, her relatives would be assaulting each other at this very moment for the right to sue everyone and their mother.

What a stupid bitch!  Luckily the lion wasn't able to maul or attack her or they probably would have had to put the lion down.

Have you taken a look at the picture of her?  

Why do you think the lion is looking at her like "Seriously?"

I had to look that up because I couldn't remember if Darwin Award nominees had to be rendered unable to breed:

The Darwin Awards are a tongue-in-cheek honor, originating in Usenet newsgroup discussions around 1985. They recognize individuals who have supposedly contributed to human evolution by selecting themselves out of the gene pool via death or sterilization by their own actions.

Glad I looked it up before I started to argue with you. jrSmiley_9_smiley_image.gif

I agree but that's a result of her genes, health and lifestyle not interaction with the lion.  So still no Darwin for her.

Lol while she's way up there on the list she's not the stupidest as there's been some who did the same sort of thing but without a moat and managed to get themselves killed.

Maybe we should dig REALLY deep, and see if we can pull up her "Mental Capacity Records" to insure this never happens again.....if they're available that is !

I understand what you are saying.  I was thinking the very same thing just before I clicked on this, the most recent of your contributions here.  

Your happiness is important to me, and I don't think you are going to be happy by continuing to comment on this 'stupid is as stupid does' seed.

The lion was looking at her like she was some kind of a nut.

If he attacked her they would have probably killed  him and I would be very angry.

He probably would have wanted to wash his mouth out. I doubt people actually taste very good to lions. I'm pretty sure we don't taste like chicken

That would be dependent on what SHE had to eat.  Most wild carnivores go for the tasty guts first.  It's the easiest to get, most filling, easiest to digest and best for them.  (Wild critters are actually pretty damn smart.)  Going for the muscle meat means having to work to rip it off the bone.

After the first bite he would have realized, this ain’t chicken... Then he would have just tossed her in the air a few times like a cat “playing” with a mouse until it’s dead.

Put the Lion back in it's natural habitat and put that lady in the cage.

Zoos are awful places. Keeping animals in small enclosures is torture and it's time to end the practice. I've heard all of the reasons why we need to cage animals but none of them are good. It's for our entertainment, research is best suited for the field. This lady is a perfect example of why the zoo should not be.

Let's put resources in to protecting the lions habitat and morons can watch documentaries about them without encounters like this. Had the lion killed the lady the zoo would have killed the lion.

While it's a nice concept, it's not practical and would likely result in the deaths of many of those animals.   Most if not all zoo animals were born in captivity and have no concept of any world beyond the confines of their environment.  Putting them out in the "real world" without the skills to survive and thrive would be extremely cruel.

Now, as to the "lady", the use of that term is insulting to 'ladies'.  But I agree that she should be in her own cage.

It's too bad that the lion had already been fed.   He missed out on a nice fresh hot meal.
