Texas Woman Gets In Monkey Exhibit To Feed Them Flamin' Hot Cheetos

Flamin' Hot Cheetos are one of the best chips out there. Nothing beats that spicy red hot chust. And surprisingly, a Texas woman wanted to share her Cheetos. Over the weekend, she was visiting the El Paso Zoo in Texas and decided she wanted to feed the spider monkeys. She climbed into their enclosure and well, check out the video below:

Luz Elizabeth Rae (26) was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing.

The zoo released the following statement:

"It's extremely dangerous. These are primates we're talking about here, so they can do some substantial damage to you. They have large canines; they're stronger than they look. They may be small monkeys, but they are extremely strong. They can take you to the ground if they wanted to. It takes years to build trust with these animals and for someone to come in there for five minutes for a video on Instagram or whatever just ruins years of work."

Additionally, the Zoo director Joe Montisano has said they're considering renovating exhibits like this moving forward so others cannot get into the enclosure. He stated the following:

"It's (the enclosure) been here—I don't know—30 years. But now they're going to probably review. There are standards and maybe they're going to have to make some changes to that so it could have a large ripple effect, not only here, not only in Texas, but all over the country, quite frankly, because of one person's ignorant action."

So, after Tiger King Texas and now this, we're going to have to change it from only in Florida to only in Texas.
