Video of a woman who jumped into a lion enclosure at the zoo to dance next to a lion going viral.
Over the weekend, a woman jumped over the almost 14-foot safety barrier at the Bronx Zoo’s African lion exhibit and the video was posted online.
The video showed the woman standing dangerously close to a lion.
Hernán Reynoso, the man who filmed the video says he was at the zoo with his wife and son, and while he was recording something else his wife yelled: “Look at that!”
The video showed a woman in a Black T-Shirt and pants standing just feet away from a lion.
The woman started dancing, and the Lion and woman stared at each other for a brief period. The woman also started waving and greeting the lion.
Reynoso told reporters:
“But when I see … she just was there, dancing, saying, ‘Hi,’ to the lion and everything and that was crazy,”
Reynoso said at one point the lion got agitated and roared, and that’s when he grabbed his family and left.
Here’s the video:
