Singing zoo visitor hops barrier to feed lions cookies Published: June 24, 2014

MEMPHIS, TN - Visitors contacted Memphis Zoo security when a woman jumped the barrier into the lions' enclosure to feed them cookies, reports WMC.

"Last week she was noticed by our security staff throwing objects into the lion exhibit; at that time she was asked to leave the zoo," Memphis Zoo spokesperson Abbey Dane said.

Her second incident, hopping the fence and then singing to the animals, was this woman's second incident. After the barrier, the only thing that separates a patron from the lions is wire.
