World reacts to woman jumping into tiger pen at Toronto Zoo
The Toronto Zoo's gotten a lot of international press lately, mostly thanks to its slew of baby animals, including its two new panda cubs. Now, it's gaining world-wide attention yet again, but for a different reason.
This weekend, a woman jumped into the zoo's tiger pen to apparently retrieve her hat. She wasn't in direct contact with the wild cat, but onlookers weren't too pleased with her rash decision - someone said she set a bad example for children and another called her move "moronic."
However, it's against zoo by-laws to "climb, break, injure, mark, tamper with or deface any building, fence, cage, enclosure, equipment, installation or structure."
One such passerby caught the entire incidence on video and the nearly minute and a half YouTube clip already has more than one million views, and counting.
This video's already been shared with news outlets here at home as well as with publications in the United States, the U.K. and Australia.
