A woman has been banned from the Memphis Zoo after climbing over a barrier and trying to feed cookies to lions.

Zoo patrons alerted security when the woman climbed the barrier and began singing to the lions, WMC-TV reported. After climbing the barrier, only wire separated the woman from the lions.

"(She was singing) some song that was telling how much she missed them. It was bizarre," witness Michelle Beasley told WMC-TV. "I've never seen someone singing to a lion. It was really loud."

According to the station, the woman was asked to leave the zoo a week earlier after throwing objects into the lion enclosure. Zoo spokesperson Abbey Dane said the woman was trying to feed the animals cookies both times.

“She will not be granted access to the zoo anymore," Dane told the station.

The zoo made a reference to the incident on its Facebook page, using the hashtag #cookiesareforpeople.
