KANSAS GN - A woman has expressed her shock after going to the bathroom at a circus only to discover a tiger lying in wait.

Jenna Krehbiel reportedly went to the toilet with her 3-yr-old daughter during a circus performance at the Isis Shrine Circus. However, when she entered the toilet, she was confronted by a tiger which had escaped from its enclosure at the circus. Krehbiel said that the tiger was only 2 feet away from her when she saw it. She said: “I turned around calmly and walked back toward the door. Someone opened the door and said, ‘Get out’. “It was the closest I have ever been to a tiger not in its cage. You don’t expect to go in a bathroom door, have it shut behind you and see a tiger walking toward you.” Krehbiel added that her daughter simply “wanted to know if it had washed its hands”. “That was her only concern,” she recalled. The tiger had been performing in the circus show, but had escaped and walked into the women’s toilets.
