Woman Loses Part of Finger to Lion in Mid-Michigan Zoo [Video]

Ouch!

A woman visiting a mid-Michigan zoo lost part of her finger after a lion bit it. WNEM says the incident happened at Sunrise Side Nature Trail and Exotic Park near East Tawas. Renae Ferguson and her daughter were visiting the park and claim that a worker let them into the lion’s cage. Ferguson put her hand down to pet the lion when he bit her and ripped part of her right middle finger clean off. Park officials deny allowing Ferguson into the lion’s cage and say she was in a restricted area after being told to repeatedly get back by a guide and that there are warning signs all over the place. Ferguson says she is planning to take legal action against the park.

This begs a couple of questions: would you even want to go into a lion’s cage? who do you think is telling the truth?
