MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Police say a California woman was cited after climbing into the giraffe exhibit at a Madison zoo and getting kicked in the face.

A police report says 24-year-old Amanda Hall, of San Luis Obispo, California, climbed over one fence and almost got over the second fence of the giraffe enclosure at the Henry Vilas Zoo about 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

A 2-year-old, 12-foot-tall giraffe named Wally gave Hall a lick, then turned and kicked her in the face.

Zoo staff told police that giraffes are capable of killing lions, so the woman was fortunate that her injuries were not life-threatening.

Police ticketed Hall for harassment of zoo animals, which has a fine of $686.

The police report says Hall told officers she climbed into the exhibit because she loves giraffes.

    I guess he didn’t like the way she tasted. Note to self: if you can only see it in a zoo, if you can’t buy it at a pet store, if it is known to kill lions, STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM IT!! I think giraffes are absolutely cute, however, the stuffed one standing in the corner of my bedroom will suffice.

      He should have kicked her where her brains were. Right up her @ss. Maybe she’ll make the column for stupidest people in her hometown newspaper, just like the people who are lighting themselves on fire.
