OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A woman accused of trespassing into a Nebraska zoo to pet a tiger has pleaded not guilty to charges.

An attorney for Jacqueline Eide entered the plea Tuesday on her behalf. Eide faces charges including trespassing and criminal mischief.

The 33-year-old Eide is accused of trespassing at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo following a social function on Halloween at the facility. Authorities say she was bitten by a tiger when she reached into an exhibit.

Omaha television station WOWT reports Eide went to a hospital for treatment to a severe hand wound. Police say she acted aggressively and appeared to be intoxicated.
