    Nuts!! What was she thinking? Something has to be wrong with her......which would be sad and wonder how she got in there. I can't believe someone in their right mind would do that.........

    If the lady at the Bronx Zoo is mentally challenged, that's really sad.

    I also cannot imagine a reasonable thinking adult doing this.

    But I also remember the lady climbing a fence to get a closer picture of a polar bear. Cameras have had Zoom for a long time. Are pictures really worth giving up your life? Based on how many people have died trying to take selfies, I guess in too many cases, the answer is Yes.

    Anytime I see something like this I'm reminded of the tiger who took care of business (San Francisco, I think) when taunted. I'm glad the lion just stood there, for his sake, not the idiot human's. The tiger ended up dead.

    Want to know how she got past the moat. As a former resident of NYC and I would frequently work and pass thru this famous Borough.... This doesn't surprise me

    This is one time the lion should have captured this person for a snack. Just joking.

    Luckily the Lion had just finished eating his major meal of the day and wasn't hungry at the time she showed up :doh:

    Well what I wanted to say earlier was....
    If the Lions instinct world full gear and he had indeed attacked and mauled her to death....

    She would have gotten what she deserved and should have known better. however unfortunately I think they would have euthanized a lion for doing what a lion is hardwired to do makes no sense to me.

    I am glad the lion didn't do anything. The lion would have been shot if he reacted.

    The news said this morning that someone saw her "smoking" right before hand.....I am guessing a joint for them to mention it.

    Still nuts!!!
