Woman Cited for Climbing Into Giraffe Pen, Getting Kicked in Face

Police in Wisconsin say a woman was cited this weekend after climbing into a zoo's giraffe pen and getting a big ol' giraffe kick in the face.

The Associated Press reports 24-year-old Amanda Hall, of San Luis Obispo, California, managed to climb over the first of two fences in the Madison zoo's giraffe enclosure. She almost made her way over the second when she met Wally. From the AP:

A 2-year-old, 12-foot-tall giraffe named Wally gave Hall a lick, then turned and kicked her in the face.

Girl, tell me about it.

Police fined Hall $686 for harassment of zoo animals. According to the AP, the police report says Hall told officers she climbed into the exhibit "because she loves giraffes."
