"The bad part about this ... is if something happened, the lion would’ve been put down," Zagari said. "It's awful and selfish of somebody to do."

Zagari said she and her husband left to get an employee, but when they got back to the exhibit, the trespasser was gone.

"This action was a serious violation and unlawful trespass that could have resulted in serious injury or death," said a statement from the Bronx Zoo. "Barriers and rules are in place to keep both visitors, staff and animals safe. We have a zero tolerance policy on trespass and violation of barriers."

A zoo spokesperson said Wednesday that a concrete trench was between the woman and the lion.
