Myah Autry Wiki – Myah Autry Biography
Myah Autry, who dubbed Bronx Zoo’s “Lion Lady”, is wanted again for allegedly trespassing and taunting lions.
Autry was charged in 2019 for trespassing into the Bronx Zoo in New York City, where she reportedly taunted the lions at the African lion exhibit. Fox News reports that Autry is once again accused of sneaking into the zoo, this time while wearing a red dress and a leopard-print shawl.
She is 32 years old.
Myah Autry Wanted
NYC police are currently looking for a 32-year-old woman named Myah Autry, the same person involved in the zoo incident in 2019. The authorities are asking for the public’s help to locate her whereabouts.
“This situation involves one individual who is determined to harass our lions with no regard for her safety or the safety of our staff and our guests, and no regard for the well-being of the lions,” a zoo spokesperson told FOX 5, New York. “The Bronx Zoo has a zero-tolerance policy in matters such as this and will aggressively seek prosecution against this individual and anyone who violates park safety rules.”
In the video that went viral on social media, it can be seen that the ‘lion lady’ in a red dress and leopard print shawl with a rose stood across a moat from a lion while talking and tossing money to it.
Two years ago, Autry was also charged with criminal trespass for climbing into the lion enclosure at the same zoo and taunting the animal inside. Authorities say she also entered the fenced-in giraffe enclosure.
The Bronx Zoo once stated the stunt, saying that the “action was a serious violation and unlawful trespass that could have resulted in serious injury or death. Barriers and rules are in place to keep both visitors, staff, and animals safe. We have a zero-tolerance policy on trespass and violation of barriers.”
The lion exhibit is part of the zoo’s African Plains exhibit and African wild dogs and zebras.
