Jacqueline Eide bitten by tiger she snuck into zoo to pet

A 33-year-old woman has reportedly suffered severe hand trauma after sneaking into a Nebraska zoo to pet a tiger on Halloween.

Jacqueline Eide was taken to the hospital after being bitten on her left hand by the tiger at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium early Sunday morning.

Daily Mail reports that Eide had 'made unauthorized entry into the Zoo to pet a tiger. When she reached into the cage, she was bitten, causing severe trauma to her hand'.

A friend drove Eide to the hospital where she was allegedly aggressive toward medical staff and showed signs of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Eide was cited by police at 7.20am for criminal trespass and remained in the hospital for treatment.

A spokesman for the zoo said that the tiger believed to have been involved, was an 18-year-old Malayan tiger named Mai.
