The woman who walked straight into the lion's den at the Bronx Zoo — and survived — was high as a kite when confronting the king of the jungle … this according to cops, who say they found video of her smoking before her stunt.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … police have identified the woman who jumped a fence and entered the lion's enclosure over the weekend, and they say her social media shows her smoking something that looks like a blunt before walking into the zoo.
As you can see in the wild video from the incident … the woman is staring down the lion in his enclosure, and she does a few dance moves only a few feet away from the massive beast, seemingly taunting the big cat.
Seems like the woman planned to mess with the Lion all along … she's on video bragging, "I'm about to go f**k around with mother nature" after taking a few puffs outside the zoo. It's unclear exactly what she's smoking, but … we can let the video speak for itself.
The lion didn't bite, but the woman's actions are not without consequence … our sources say the Wildlife Conservation Society filed a police report Tuesday for misdemeanor criminal trespass — for going into the enclosure.
However, we're told an arrest warrant has not been issued.
