Video: Woman arrested after entering elephant area at LA Zoo
Woman: 'I'm going to pet the elephants now'
LOS ANGELES — A woman jumped fences and crossed ditches at the Los Angeles Zoo to gain entry to the zoo's elephant sanctuary and pet the animals, authorities said.
When zoo staffers spotted the woman, they urged her to get out and she did, climbing out over the fences and ditches designed to keep people away from the animals.
