A woman was bitten by a lion at Melbourne Zoo after slipping her hand inside the enclosure to get a flower, the zoo confirmed today.

It is the second time in the past month that an animal has injured a visitor at the zoo.

The incident has prompted a review of perimeter security around the lion enclosure, with electric fencing to be installed to prevent lions getting close to the barrier.

Um, how about putting up an electric fence on the outside to prevent the idiots putting their hands INTO THE LION CAGE? Sheesh!
