Autry also entered the zoo’s giraffe enclosure the same day, CNN reported.

She told reporters at the time she “wasn’t fearing of the lion,” claiming that the animal loved her and that she was the lion reincarnate.

Although unconfirmed by police, it appears Autry may have been responsible for this week’s stunt.

The woman who witnessed the latest incident pointed out to NBC that same-day posts made to Autry’s Instagram account Thursday show Autry wearing the same outfit as the woman spotted taunting the lion.
