Bronx Woman Jumps into Lion’s Den at Bronx Zoo

A woman hopped over the fence into the lion exhibit at the Bronx Zoo last Saturday, September 27th. Caught on video, her close contact with the big cats was posted across multiple Instagram pages, including her own. The woman’s video opens with her handing her phone to a man, saying “Yeah I’m about to climb over, I want to get closer to them.” The man responds with “you’re not supposed to do that.” which is unheeded by the trespasser. “Go ahead and fall in there. See what happens.” he adds. The lion takes notice of the woman, making eye contact and stepping slightly closer to her. The woman starts waving at the animals, while someone in the background asks if the man holding the camera knows her. “Can you tell her to get back? It’s probably not safe” “I told her, she don’t listen to me.” In another video, the woman is seen waving at the lion, calling out “Hi baby, baby! Hi I love you!”

E-cigarettes are marketed as a healthy alternative to cigarettes, but is that label inherently misleading?  Are there legitimate and negative health effects on teens that warrant a ban? Or is the government unfairly cracking down on a low risk product just because it is technically a drug?
