The woman accused of entering the Bronx Zoo lion enclosure was arrested

(CNN) A woman accused of sneaking into the lion and giraffe exhibits at the Bronx Zoo in late September has been arrested, the New York Police Department announced.

Myah Autry, 30, who'd previously been identified by the NYPD as the woman who went into the enclosures, was arrested Wednesday night and charged with two counts of criminal trespass, according to police.

Autry posted on Instagram that she was going to Barclays Center to turn herself into police and notified several news media outlets, according to a law enforcement source. Detectives went to the area and arrested her. She was wearing an NYPD shirt at the time of the arrest, the source said.

It is unclear if Autry has an attorney.

Autry allegedly shared videos of herself climbing over the wooden fence on the day of the incident, then waving and dancing once inside as the big cat gawked.

3. If she's convicted, the judge should give her an option...

Seven days imprisonment in Rikers island or seven days imprisonment in the New York Zoo lion exhibit.

5. I'm glad she wasn't hurt, or worse.

But, that said, what would have happened if the Lion had attacked her, and maybe killed her?

I'm guessing the Lion would have been 'put down'. The Lion that was being caged in a tiny area would have been 'put down' because somebody that wanted to post a video couldn't even respect that tiny area that the Lion was living in.

Like I said, I'm glad the lady wasn't hurt, or worse. But, if the Lion had hurt her, or worse..I'd understand.

6. Yet, another reason why we need to fix and upgrade our healthcare system

At about 0:46 in this video, she looks like she might possibly be an emotionally disturbed person. (EDP)
