Woman who climbed in exhibit with lions at Bronx Zoo identifies herself on social media

The woman who climbed into the lion’s den at the Bronx Zoo during the weekend has identified herself — kinda — by way of social media.

The unbelievably audacious daredevil calls herself Myáh Lareé Israelite, according to her instagram profile where she also posted a video of her climbing into the enclosure with the big cats, dancing and waving at the beasts.

Videos of her taunting the “King of the Jungle” went viral on Tuesday.

Responses to her post show an overwhelming consensus that many did not approve of the antics. Most folks who replied let her know with a litany of expletives while berating the woman.

In one of the tamer replies, user @aidenlucasp admonished her in part: “Nothing brave or great about this just complete stupidity. As well as risking the animal’s life you did it in front of children. Imagine what they would have had to see if it had ripped you apart, the scars that would (have) left on them kids.”

In a subsequent post, the woman wrote: “I Literally WEnt in his Habbitat [sic] and He did not Growl or He didn’t not [sic] go into Attack Mode!!! Why? Like All things, Even Animals know if your [sic] acting out of Love & Fearlessness.”
