MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A singing woman at the Memphis Zoo hopped the barrier into the lion enclosure and attempted to feed cookies to the animals and serenade them with a song, according to the Associated Press.

“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,” said Abbey Dane of the Memphis Zoo.

On Monday, the woman came back and jumped a barrier in front of the lions, who reportedly walked up to the fence that has a half-inch spacing in between the wires. The woman was reportedly singing to the lions.

“Some song (was about) how much she missed them. It was bizarre,” said Abby Dane, a worker at the zoo.  “I’ve never seen someone singing to a lion. It was really loud.”

The woman was also attempting to feed cookies to the lions in both instances.

Someone called a zoo hotline and reported the woman. She was asked to leave and has been banned from the zoo.

    They should have called 911 and sent the crazy coach. This woman is not mentally well and she will be back, banned or not.

    Sounds like what a scared person would do in the wild all except feed them cookies that is just 50/50 life bribery chances with kings of the jungle. that could be her punshment if caught tresspassing , stuck in the wild serenaden the jungle next door to everybodies road in each and everyone community, feeding the people and adding a little dance to the swagger of acting like a fool at the zoo on ObamaCare Drinks. For better not worse as the dance is for everyone to do as it is best to remember there is always a bigger animal then you; to make friends with, and feed them ObamaCare Cookies.
