A woman who was forced to use her own toilet at a zoo in North Carolina is now protesting the facility, calling it an “excruciating and horrible experience” and saying she would like to “get out of here.”
Natalie Bongiovanni posted a video to her Facebook page Wednesday expressing her anger over the new North Carolina animal zoo.
The video shows a young giraffe in a cage with a rope attached to its neck.
A man in a red mask walks in, pointing a gun at the animal.
Bongovanni then yells: “Get out!
What are you doing?
I have a right to use my own toilet.
I don’t need your permission!”
The video ends with Bongivanni saying, “This is the worst part.
You’re not going to stop this.
You need to get out of there.”
Bongivini is not alone in her complaints.
A number of people have been leaving comments on Bongvianni’s video, some calling for her to be fired and others calling her a disgrace.
“I am not going back to this place,” said another user, who identified himself only as “John Doe.”
Bond is a transgender woman who lives in Virginia and was visiting her mother’s home in Northampton County when she witnessed the incident.
She said she decided to make a video after she witnessed another woman being forced to urinate in a women’s restroom at a North Carolina zoo.
“When I saw this, I was like, ‘Oh my God.
Is this happening in real life?
There are literally millions of transgender people out there. “
There are literally millions of transgender people out there.
I think it’s ridiculous that we have to hide that,” she said.
She said she believes North Carolina needs to get rid of the animals in its zoo, but not to close it down.
Bond, a transgender activist who has been involved in the Black Lives Matter movement, has been a vocal critic of North Carolina’s “bathroom bill,” which requires transgender people to use the bathroom of the gender with which they identify.
Bongiovani said she was angry about the new facility, saying it was a “barking dog” and that the animals were “scary.””
This is so horrific.
It’s horrible to be forced to go to a zoo like this and be afraid of this.
“If it’s a real circus, why would you have a female giraffe? “
It’s scary to have a giraffe, but it’s not scary to the people who work there.””

The North Carolina Department of Natural Resources did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
