OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A woman who was bitten by a tiger after she sneaked into a zoo in Nebraska has pleaded guilty to trespassing.

Jacqueline Eide (eyed) pleaded guilty Monday in Omaha and was fined $250 plus court costs. Prosecutors dropped two other misdemeanor charges in return for her plea.

The 33-year-old Eide was accused of sneaking into Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo following a social function there on Halloween last year. Authorities say Eide was bitten by a Malayan tiger named Mai (meye) when she reached into the tiger’s exhibit. Police say Eide acted aggressively and appeared to be intoxicated.

She was treated for the hand wound at an Omaha hospital.
