It gets even better, though, because not only was the tiger there and REALLY ready to hunt — a thin chain-link fence was all that separated woman and beast once she jumped in — but after the lady climbed back out of the enclosure, she got in a fight with other zoo guests over her actions!

Ch-ch-check it out (below), all going down from the initial jump into the enclosure, to two men loudly and repeatedly calling the woman a 'moron' for her actions because, well…

Courtney Stodden is "dying" for people to stop buying live animals from PetSmart.

The 21-year-old dressed up as a sexy (dead) mouse on Thursday and joined PETA in an El Lay protest against the pet store's allegedly cruel pet trade.

According to a 15-week PETA investigation, a PetSmart supplier has been accused of gassing animals in plastic bags and setting them aside "to die and waste away." Additionally, the organization says that small animals are being warehoused in plastic bins and even frozen alive.

This is so horrific if true!

Miz Stodden — who laid on the sidewalk in a pool of fake blood — said of the protest:

"It's heartbreaking to think that countless mice, rats, bunnies, and lizards are dying in filthy bins for PetSmart's stores. My friends at PETA and I urge everyone to refuse to shop anywhere that sells live animals!"

This story breaks our hearts, but at least there will be some justice here.

Back in December we showed you the upsetting video of Bowmanville Zoo owner Michael Hackenberger, who has provided animals for several productions including the award-winning Life Of Pi, allegedly striking a young Siberian tiger.

In the clip released by PETA, Hackenberger appears to be repeatedly lashing the large cat with a whip and then later explaining the most effective places to hit the animal. The animal trainer later denied PETA's "lies."

In new developments on Wednesday, the Ontario SPCA has charged the trainer with five counts of animal cruelty after thoroughly reviewing his zoo's practices.

The 81-year-old said in the exciting announcement:

"I am pleased to announce that the Armani Group has made a firm commitment to abolish the use of animal fur in its collections. Technological progress made over the years allows us to have valid alternatives at our disposition that render the use of cruel practices unnecessary as regards animals. Pursuing the positive process undertaken long ago, my company is now taking a major step ahead, reflecting our attention to the critical issues of protecting and caring for the environment and animals."

The Italian designer's animal-friendly news is a part of the company's deal with the Fur Free Alliance.

These new partners are hoping that the fashion great's decision will also inspire other brands to ditch designs with fur, and instead use different alternatives.
