Salina - Recently when a young mother visited a bathroom while bringing her daughter to a traveling circus she found herself in a very close encounter with a tiger who had wandered from its cage.
The bizarre incident occurred when the tiger briefly bolted to freedom after her turn in the ring performing at the Isis Shrine Circus last Saturday during a run in Salina, Kansas.
Circus staff members had blocked off the animal from entering the concourse and corralled the huge multi- colored cat into a 25 foot bathroom which they had thought they had blocked off from public entrance.
Ironically Ms Jenna Kreilbeil a social worker decided to enter the same bathroom from another door that had not been secured by the circus security team and when she did she found herself only two feet from the animal who was clearly out of it's element.
"Once she saw the tiger I'm sure she knew to go the other way, Overall it was a scary surreal moment." said Manager of The Bicentennial Center Chris Bird.
Ms Kreilbeil knew that large animals can be very territorial and did not look at the feline giant directly in its eyes, instead she calmly turned around and exited the room.
Her 3 year old daughter also had a concern that she later addressed with her mum.
" At the time I just needed to get out. My daughter wanted to know if it ( the tiger) had washed its hands, that was her only concern.' said, Khielbeil
Perhaps the young lass had seen Life Of PI!
