Lots of fans applauded her and wrote comments such as: "A tremendous amount of work being done by our wildlife biologists at zoos. By taking your family out to the zoo you are supporting their wonderful work!" But then there were some who had a different opinion.
One wrote: "In jail, so sad," and another added: "Please don't go to zoos. Those animals belong in the wild."
