A woman is recovering after reportedly being bit by a tiger early Sunday morning while trespassing at the Omaha Zoo.

Police in Omaha were called to Creighton Medical Center after reports of a disturbance with a patient that had an injury to her hand.

33 year-old Jacquline Edie was aggressive towards staff at the hospital and appeared to be intoxicated. Officers discovered that Edie allegedly trespassed at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo to pet a tiger.

While reaching into the tiger’s cage she was bit, causing severe trauma to her left hand, according to investigators.

The zoo released a statement on Sunday night confirming two people trespassed on Halloween night.
