Oh my!

The Memphis Zoo has banned a woman for life because she jumped the barrier of the lion enclosure to feed them cookies, the Associated Press reports.

Last week she was caught throwing objects into the exhibit, according to a zoo spokesperson. After climbing the barrier, she started singing to the wild animals about how much she missed them.

“I’ve never seen someone singing to a lion before,” witness Michelle Beasley told WMC Action News 5. “It was really loud.”
