It was during a Shrine Circus in Salina, Kansas when a woman came face to face with a tiger in a ladies' room.

After its performance in the ring, the tiger somehow wandered away until handlers were able to corner it a ladies' bathroom. They were able to block one of the doors but couldn't get to the other one.  Sure enough, that's the one the woman used, and the tiger was only two feet away!

Luckily, she was able to turn around and close the door behind her.  She described her encounter with a Salina TV station.

They were finally able to force the tiger into a cage and moved it back to its pen without anyone getting hurt.
