Zoo petter charged
OHIO zoo officials say they are pressing charges against a man who jumped a fence to pet cougars, then posted his video on YouTube. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium says the Delaware County Sheriff’s office has charged a suspect with a misdemeanour count of trespassing. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Tracy Whited says 35- year- old Joshua Newell was served with a summons. The video shows an outer fence being jumped, then two cougars being petted through another fence as a voice says, “kitty, kitty”.
