Baby Giraffe Kicks Woman in Head After She Climbs into Giraffe Exhibit

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police say a California woman was cited after climbing into a giraffe exhibit at a Wisconsin zoo and getting kicked in the face by one of the animals.


A police report from the Madison Police Department says 24-year-old Amanda Hall, of San Luis Obispo, California, `climbed over one fence and was partially through a second fence that surrounds the giraffe exhibit` at the Henry Vilas Zoo.

A 2-year-old giraffe named Wally gave Hall a lick, then before turning and kicking her in the face, police said."

Amanda loves giraffes and she wanted to get up close and personal with them. You can get up close and personal with kittens and puppies, but even a 2-year-old giraffe can kill an adult with a swift kick to the head.

Amanda`s elevator may not go all the way to the top floor, or high enough to pat a giraffe on the head, but who cares, she`s gorgeous!

Amanda was cited for " harassment of zoo animals", an offense that carries a fine of only $686.

I would love to take Amanda on a date to the zoo; I would hold her hand tightly to prevent her from climbing into the giraffe exhibit.

Amanda`s pic, is she gorgeous or what?
