MEMPHIS (WHAS11) Memphis Zoo officials say a woman did something that none of us would dream of doing.

They say she climbed the wall and jumped into the enclosure where lions are kept.

Officials say the woman was trying to feed the lions cookies.

The people who saw the woman jump in with the lions say she was also singing to them.

We had a visitor who decided that she would really just like to get closer to our lions. [She] decided to serenade them and maybe even feed them a cookie or two. As long as I ve been here this has never happened, the official said.

Zoo officials say after the barrier, the only thing separating the person from the lions was a wire.
