An Australian woman has learned the hard way why there are safety barriers at zoos. Authorities said a lion at the Melbourne Zoo bit off the tip of the woman's finger and ate it after she climbed over a barrier next to the animal's cage to pick flowers. The zoo's director said visitors are asked to stay behind the safety barriers. The lion apparently bit the woman from inside its cage, even though she was outside. The attack was the second in a month by a big cat at the zoo. Last month, a Persian leopard reached through a wire fence and badly scratched a 9-year-old boy who had climbed over a safety barrier.

If you are stupid enough to ignore the safety barrier, than you get what you deserve.
