A woman climbed over a visitor safety barrier at the Bronx Zoo’s African lion exhibit over the weekend. Video posted to Instagram shows a woman in a T-shirt and pants standing just feet away from a male lion. They stare at each other for a brief period of time. Then she seems to almost taunt it, raising her arms and wiggling her body for a second as if she’s dancing. The lion just stares. The Bronx Zoo confirmed the incident by saying: “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. We have a zero tolerance policy on trespass and violation of barriers.” The Zoo is still looking for the woman so they can press charges.
