Sadly, way too many people leave their common sense at home when visiting a zoo. As it turns out, forbidden petting, feeding and taunting of the animals is not as rare as it should be.  Some people even take disobeying the zoo’s rules to the next level by sneaking into the enclosures of dangerous animals. While it’s hard to imagine what goes through the mind of these people, it’s evident that these daredevils haven’t learned their lesson yet.

You might remember the story of Harambe, the gorilla who was killed after a 4-year-old fell into his enclosure? Or that incident with a jaguar attacking a woman who stepped over the barriers? Let’s not forget that insane man who forgot that lions aren’t house cats and shouldn’t be petted! Well, brace yourself for an even more insane story coming up.

Recently, a video of a woman taunting a lion inside an exhibit went viral

On Sunday, Instagram user realsobrino posted a shocking video showing a woman climbing into a lions’ exhibit during a visit to a Bronx zoo.

The woman, who obviously didn’t get the memo on how dangerous these apex predators are, actually tried to get the lion’s attention.

The lion seemed completely unfazed by the woman who was standing inches away from him and even waved and danced to get his attention.

Luckily, the animal didn’t attack the insane lady who was promptly escorted from the zoo’s premises. The unknown woman is now wanted by police for trespassing.
