Is Renae Ferguson telling the truth?

A lack of common sense or is Renae Ferguson not telling the whole truth?

Renae Ferguson has told she intends to sue a Michigan zoo for failing to take enough steps to protect her after a caged lion bit her right middle finger whilst attempting to pet it.

On the day of the incident, Renae Ferguson was visiting the Sunrise Side Nature Trail and Exotic Park outside of East Tawas when she she told a worker let herself and daughter Tina Dobson into a lion’s cage.

Told Ferguson via WNEM‘I put my hand down there to pet it and it ripped my finger,’

‘I was in total shock,’

‘I really didn’t believe that was part of my finger laying on the ground.’

Subsequent to the incident, Ferguson has alleged that zoo owners were more worried about their reputation than her well-being.

Adding: They just told me not to tell. They told me to lie,’ 

While she doesn’t want the zoo to go out of business, she believes they must prevent another person from being attacked.

Reiterating: ‘They are beautiful, but don’t do it.’

Daughter Dobson backed her mother’s account, telling reporters: ‘I would like like to see more precautions taken to protect the people as well as the animals.’

But zoo officials say there are already multiple warning and bite signs posted, and tell that Ferguson snuck into the restricted area after staff told her not to do it.

‘The lady went into the security area and was told by the guide to get back and the lady stated she wanted to touch the lion and continued, against the guide’s warning, to put her finger inside the fence and the lion nipped the end of her finger,’ the owners wrote in an email.

Zoo owners have purportedly declined to return WNEM’s overtures for comments.

    FVCK paying her anything. That moronic b*tch should have to pay for the trauma she inflicted on the animal. It is appalling that anyone would even conceive of suing someone else because they are so stupid. Makes me want to inflict far more damage on her than the lion did. People like her should be exterminated… and yeah, I’m sure her lawsuit is all about her “concern” for the safety of others. Hahahahaha

    Wahhhh!She lost a little flesh on the tip of her middle finger.How that becomes “losing” a finger i imagine comes from her lawyer.The zoo should pay any medical bills for her and it should be done with.
