Episode led the park management to issue a statement saying the action 'could have resulted in injury or death'
The video of a woman dancing a few feet from an African lion at the Bronx Zoo in New York viralized in the United States – and led the park management to issue a statement on Tuesday saying the action "could have resulted in injury or death. "
In the images, the woman – who, according to the CNN news network, climbed the security barrier that separates animals and visitors on Saturday (28) – seems to wave and dance at the watching lion. She does not seem concerned with the animal's movements. Watch below.
New York police said it was not fired and there were no arrests, as officers were notified only on Tuesday.
The Bronx Zoo has reported a criminal invasion, and for now it is not known how the woman managed to break into space and how long she stayed there. "Barriers and rules exist to keep visitors, staff and animals safe. We have a zero tolerance policy for transgressions and breaches of barriers," the park administration added.
