Woman injured during close encounter with zoo elephant http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=state&id=3958835 A 25-year-old woman climbed past barriers and into an elephant's exhibit at the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, then crawled out with minor injuries. That's after the three-ton animal smacked her with its trunk. Zoo director Jim Fleshman says the woman said she wanted to play with the elephant yesterday afternoon. So she scaled a three-foot wood-and-wire fence and an eight-foot artificial rock structure. She then bypassed an electric wire before jumping into the exhibit. After the woman got out, fire and emergency crews took her to a hospital with minor injuries, including scrapes on her side and arm. Waco Fire officials say the woman, whose name wasn't released, was visiting the zoo with a child and another woman.
