A woman was bitten by a tiger after she drunkenly broke into a Nebraska zoo over the weekend to pet the big cat, The Associated Press reported.

Officer James Shade says the 33-year-old woman suffered a severe hand injury in the incident at the Omaha Zoo early Sunday.

Shade said officers were called to the Creighton University Medical Center around 7:20 a.m. after the injured woman showed up. He says she was acting aggressively and appeared to be intoxicated.

Police determined that she had sneaked into the zoo and was bitten when she reached into the tiger exhibit.

The zoo said in a statement that it was likely an 18-year-old Malayan tiger called Mai who bit the woman, and asserted that safety and security are priorities at the facility.

The woman has been cited for criminal trespass.
