MILWAUKEE - A California woman kicked in the face after trying to climb into the giraffe exhibit at a Madison zoo has paid a fine and apologized.

Police said 24-year-old Amanda Hall, of San Luis Obispo, California, tried to get into the pen at the Henry Vilas Zoo late Saturday afternoon.

Hall told WISN-TV the 2-year-old, 12-foot-tall giraffe named Wally ate some grass from her hand, licked her, then kicked her in the chin. Police ticketed Hall for harassment of zoo animals, which carries a fine of $686.

Hall told WISN-TV she's paid the fine. She said getting kicked in the face seemed like punishment enough.

The police report said Hall told officers she climbed into the exhibit because she loves giraffes.
