A woman attending a circus in Salina, Kansas visited the restroom only to find a 250 pound jungle cat looking her in the eye.  

According to the Salina Journal, Jenna Krehbiel had just seen the tiger show at the Isis Shrine Circus when she went to the restroom and stumbled upon the escaped tiger.

Unknown to her was the fact that the staff members had the animal trapped in the bathroom, and unknown to the staff members, the bathroom had two doors.

"You don't expect to go in a bathroom door, have it shut behind you and see a tiger walking toward you," she explained.  "Looking back, it was a scary ordeal.  At the time, I was just thinking I just needed to get out."

The tiger was recaptured without injury.
