(WMC)  A woman was uninjured after entering a lion exhibit at the Memphis Zoo in an attempt to feed the big cats cookies.

Visitors contacted Memphis Zoo security when the woman jumped the barrier into the lions' enclosure.

"She was singing some song that was telling how much she missed them. It was bizarre," said witness

Michelle Beasley. "I've never seen someone singing to a lion. It was really loud."

The woman was removed from the enclosure and asked to leave the zoo.

Employees have her photo in case she shows up again.
