A woman was hospitalized after sneaking into a Nebraska zoo to "pet" a tiger.

According to CNN, Jacqueline Eide, 33, snuck past security at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo on Halloween night and was sent to Creighton University Medical Center after being bitten, the Omaha Police Department said in a statement Sunday.

"Through investigation, it was learned 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," police said.
