This one-woman took the term “fearless” to a new level!

Over the weekend, a video went viral of a woman who climbed inside of a lion exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. In the video, she can be seen waving at the king of the jungle, dancing, and making faces.

NY Post has identified the woman as Myáh Lareé Israelite. It appears as if she went to the zoo to celebrate her birthday. She posted several videos of herself at the zoo, outright breaking their policy of not touching the plants and wildlife.

Today, (Oct. 2nd), the zoo filed a trespassing complaint against Israelite. The NYPD says the investigation is still ongoing. 

Israelite may suffer from a mental disorder. In one of her captions, she called herself a “full breed lioness,” which can allude to the idea that she may think that what she was doing was okay.

Hopefully, she gets the help that she needs and thank GOD she didn’t hurt herself or anyone else.

Let’s just give her an early #CongratulationsYouPlayedYourself for this stunt.
