Zoos are places where people of all types and ages go to visit, among a large part of the public are children who need to be supervised by an adult. However, many adults also need much more intensive supervision, as they have behaviors that are totally against zoo rules, such as feeding, contact, or even teasing animals, and in some cases people get so bold, they disobey and risk sneaking into dangerous animal enclosures, causing an out-of-control situation to be a risk to her and especially the animal. Simply because some visitors decide to ignore safety regulations and end up breaking into cages for closer contact with the animal, whether to record a photo or even make a video.
A recent incident occurred at the Bronx Zoo, located in the heart of New York, the Bronx Zoo is one of the largest zoos in the United States by area, comprising an impressive 265 acres of parks and natural habitats.
The New York Post reported the woman allegedly posted video of the incident on her Instagram account, and also allegedly posted video of herself inside the zoo’s giraffe exhibit.
“I REALLY HAVE NO FEAR OF NOTHING BREATHING,” reads a caption of a clip showing the woman in the lion’s den. “ANIMALS CAN FEEL LOVE JUST LIKE HUMANS.”
It was not immediately clear if Autry has entered pleas to the charges she faces or retained an attorney to comment on her behalf.
