|The tiger wandering off the stage|
(Scroll down for video) A woman thought that her life was over when she suddenly met a tiger inside a public restroom, according to video uploaded to the internet.
A tiger escaped from the Shrine Circus in Salina, Kansas, on Saturday night and wandered into the ladies room.
No one was injured, but the tiger did give the woman a scare of her life, when the two met face to face.
Jenna Krehbiel had just finished watching the show big cat, when she excused herself to go to the bathroom. Around the same time, one of the tigers managed to escape and also went to the bathroom.
"I went to the bathroom, and a lady came to get her daughter and said that there was a loose tiger," Krehbiel told a local newspaper. "I did not know however, that the tiger was in the bathroom, and as I entered the bathroom, I saw the tiger. The big animal was about two feet in front of me. I quickly turned toward the door. Someone opened the door and told me: ‘go,’" she told the newspaper.
“The woman is quite lucky to be alive. There have been other instances where once a wild animal got away from the circus stage people were injured or killed, and not to mention how many circus performers are injured or killed by the wild animals. Maybe, the circus needs to put more safety measures in place that prevent wild animals from escaping the stage,” Angela White, 47, of Bronx, New York told YourJewishNews.com after watching the tiger wandering off the stage.
The woman’s 3-year-old daughter was gloriously in the dark as to the seriousness of the situation. "My daughter wanted to know if they had washed the tiger’s hands because it had just used the restroom," she told the newspaper. "That was her only concern,” she added.Mobile video not loading?
