It has been reported that the 26 year old stockbroker, Areeb Taha Medhdi, bribed a zoo staff to get him into the jaguar enclosure just to have some private viewing.

The whole scene was recorded by one of his friend from entering into the premises, feeding the beast, and even putting his hands into jaguar’s mouth, while the animal was behind the metal bars.

Unfortunately, he uploaded the clip on Facebook, which got seen by the zoo officials, who lodged a complaint against it.

Police tracked him down using his Facebook profile and finally arrested.

When officers asked him why he did so – he explained that he’s fond of animals and a follower of the Discovery Channel and just wanted to touch the animal.

However, whether he got any punishment or not is still not clear.

The incident happened in the Nehru Zoological Garden in the city of Hyderabad, India.
