An Omaha woman who was bitten after she tried to pet a tiger at the Henry Doorly Zoo has entered a guilty plea.

Jacqueline Eide pleaded guilty to trespassing Monday morning and was fined $250.  Two other charges against Eide were dropped. Eide pleaded guilty to trespassing because she had attended an event at the zoo but never left.

Eide was bitten on the left hand when she tried to pet the tiger on Halloween night.
