A woman was caught on camera by visitors at the Bronx Zoo as she climbed over the barrier and entered the lion's enclosure. Apparently there is a mote in between her and the lion, but still. I feel bad for the lion. He looks confused.

If you want to see what happens when a captive lion decides to attack a human, watch this (spoiler alert: the man survives, no life-threatening injuries). This video was next in cue when I watched the Bronx Zoo one. This one is pretty nerve-wracking. The "trainer" guy is treating this poor lion badly. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets killed eventually. I don't think any smart individual would ever be this close to a grown lion.

Then if the lion attacked her it will be destroyed. I think it’s awful of her doing that and all those people laughing are jerks as well. This isn’t a joke. That poor animal.

The woman at the zoo I agree if she had been attacked police would be called to shoot the lion. What I don't get is why does the Bronx Zoo have such a stupid looking fence. Looked like to me the lion could just jump over that trench small 4 foot fence easily.

The 2nd video lion with the 2 men was just rough playing wasn't an attack if it was they would not be walking out with just minor flesh wounds.

Darwin's theory in live action example. Sadly I would guess her children were watching. Not a good example to set for the kids.

Can people suck any more than they do today?

The lion watched as she crept closer
But all the time kept his composure

An early lunch went through his mind
On this occasion he declined

She should be arrested and charged with something...endangering wildlife maybe? What's the consequence for doing that?

The lion looked like he was thinking she was probably a nutcase.
