Woman Climbed into Lion Enclosure at Bronx Zoo and Danced While Lion Looked On


"The lion's den" is  an expression to connote "a dangerous situation" for a reason. Because it's based in truth. When a woman recently hopped the fence at the lion enclosure at the Bronx Zoo and found herself face-to-face with an adult male lion, she had entered the lion's den all right ∏ both literally and figuratively.

A recent video went viral showing a woman climbing over a fence at the zoo to get closer to the lion. In the video, you can hear a man repeatedly say, "You're not supposed to do that," as she casually climbs into the enclosure. "I want to get closer to him," she says.
