Punish Intoxicated Woman Who Allegedly Broke Into Zoo to Pet Tiger


Target: Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson

Goal: Charge under the full extent of the law the woman who allegedly broke into a Nebraska Zoo when she was intoxicated to try and pet a tiger and got bit.

A woman who police say showed “signs of intoxication by alcohol and/or drugs” allegedly broke into Omaha’s Henry Dooly Zoo to pet a tiger and was bitten by the creature. Police say Jacqueline Eide, 33, suffered severe trauma to her left hand.

Once in the hospital, Eide was allegedly being aggressive toward staff and seemed to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The zoo said that tiger involved was the 18-year-old Malayan tiger named Mai.

This woman is extremely lucky that something worse did not happen thanks to her incredibly reckless actions. If she had been more seriously injured or even killed, officials could have been forced to put the tiger down. She also could have caused immediate harm to Mai or one of the other tigers.

Eide must truly learn her lesson and a message must be sent to show how this kind of dangerous behavior will be dealt with. Urge officials to charge Eide under the full extent of the law for allegedly endangering herself and this innocent creature.


Dear Attorney General Peterson,

Jacqueline Eide was allegedly under the influence of drugs or alcohol when she broke into Omaha’s Henry Dooly Zoo to pet a tiger and was bitten by the innocent creature. To make matters worse, Eide was allegedly aggressive towards hospital staff who were trying to treat her after the incident.

Eide’s dangerous actions are horrifying. If she had been more seriously harmed or killed by the tiger, this innocent animal may have had to be euthanized as some kind of unfair punishment, or Eide could have caused immediate harm to the tigers in the zoo habitat.

I urge you to charge Eide under the full extent of the law for her allegedly negligent actions and endangering herself and this innocent creature.

    the zoo is locked up so well that a drunk person can open it…………

    • Tina Di Troia says:

      Well they’re not expecting some dumbass drunk bitch to try to get in there and pull that shit, are they? At any rate, don’t put this on the zoo. It’s skanks like this one causing the problem.

  2. anita culling says:

    Security at this zoo needs looking into. Having said that anyone who breaks in puts their own life and the life of the precious animals at risk. Therefore should be punished.

  3. Wendy Morrison says:

    This stupid drunk woman deserved what she got–bit & deserves to be charged with trepassing and be put in a jail cell too!

  4. If we didn’t put animals behind bars in the first place….

  5. Catherine Dugan says:

    I am sorry, but this woman got what she deserved she got. A tiger is a wild animal and will attack.

  6. david belcher says:

    ok now I don’t understand why , they would have any reason at all to put the tiger down . she broke in , she assaulted the tiger . so why should the tiger have to pay the ultimate price for some stupid women’s transgression ??

    • Once the tiger has the taste of human blood there’s no telling how unstable he or she will get. From then on it will be in danger to all humans. What they should do is put him in a sanctuary where he won’t be around any humans.

  7. So let me get this straight…If some drunken idiot breaks into a tiger cage and gets mauled the tiger will pay with his life? Both the woman and the tiger are extremely lucky this wasn’t a whole lot worse. She should go to jail for sure!

  8. Charge her for the medical bills and any other monies that had to be spent. While I agree it would have been nice had the tiger taken her out, more than likely they would have euthanized the tiger. Somewhere Darwin is turning over in his grave at the level of idiots the world continues to produce ( reproduce).

  9. Don’t you people think she learned her lesson by getting her hand mauld by a tiger. And now you her in jail for the rest of her life. Give me a break it was just a drunk idiot who probably learned her lesson I can see a good fine and probation. First of all it’s probably just a trespassing misdemeanor. I doubt if you get charged with a felony.

    Pity the tiger only bit her and didn’t eat her….
