Since the zoo posted about the incident online, animal-lovers have responded to urge them not to punish the animal, with one writing: “Please don’t do anything to that animal. It’s not the jaguar’s fault that she crossed the barrier.”

The zoo replied to reassure people the jaguar wouldn’t be hurt, posting: “We can promise you nothing will happen to our jaguar. She’s a wild animal and there were proper barriers in place to keep our guests safe – not a wild animal’s fault when barriers are crossed. Still sending prayers to her and her family.”
