Kansas woman face to face with circus tiger in bathroom

SALINA, Kan. -- A Kansas woman likely won't remember her first circus for the clowns or performances -- it'll be the tiger in the bathroom.
The big cat had escaped after its turn in the ring Saturday at the Isis Shrine Circus in Salina.
Staff members blocked off the concourses at the Bicentennial Centennial Center as the tiger wandered into the bathroom.
About that time, Jenna Krehbiel, of Salina, decided she needed to use the restroom.
When she walked in, she found a tiger standing about two feet away, according to The Salina Journal.
"You don't expect to go in a bathroom door, have it shut behind you and see a tiger walking toward you," Krehbiel said.
"Looking back, it was a scary ordeal," she said.
The wayward tiger was captured within minutes and returned to its enclosure.
