Toronto Zoo officials are investigating after a video surfaced that shows a woman jumping over the first of two fences that separate zoo-goers from Sumatran tigers. It appears the woman hopped the barrier to retrieve a hat. The video, which was posted to YouTube on Saturday, shows a tiger pacing back and forth, clearly agitated, a zoo representative said, on the other side of the interior fence. Zoo representative Jennifer Tracey said:
At no time would she have come into contact with the tiger, but she easily could have broken an ankle from jumping over.
