If the Darwin Awards have near-miss honorable mentions, this chick could be a contender.
In what possible world does this seem like a good idea?
Does she think she’s looking at some kind of a Disney character? A pet?
Just because a lion is in the zoo, doesn’t mean it’s tame.

There is every reason to believe she could have been killed… and it would NOT have been the lion’s fault, either.
Lions can run fast enough to catch antelope. They can jump something like 25 feet.
And this woman wants to go INTO the enclosure… and dance?
The Bronx Zoo says the woman who trespassed inside its lion enclosure on Saturday put herself in serious danger.
“This action was a serious violation and unlawful trespass that could have resulted in serious injury or death,” a zoo spokesperson said of the woman who climbed over a visitor safety barrier at the African lion exhibit.
The woman can be seen dancing and waving her hands as if taunting the lion to move in a video from a bystander at the exhibit.
In the video, the woman does not appear scared or concerned even as the lion takes a few steps closer to her, and bystanders — including young children — could be heard talking in the background.
It goes without saying… don’t try this at home, kids.
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
