Imagine seeing this when you go to the bathroom at the circus.

It seems that would be the right place to be for this kind of encounter, though.

A woman went into the restroom at a circus in Kansas on Saturday and was confronted  by a tiger who had escaped her enclosure (and somehow decided that, being a female tiger, she would use the ladies restroom). :-D

According to an article on, the big cat briefly escaped after her turn in the ring last Saturday night at the Isis Shrine Circus in Salina, Kansas.

When Jenna Drehbiel walked into the bathroom, she came face to face with the animal who was standing about two feet from her.

The woman is a social worker and is trained to stay calm in emergencies so she didn't run or scream.

"Looking back, it was a scary ordeal," she said. "At the time, I was thinking I just needed to get out."

No one was hurt, thankfully, and the tiger was quickly captured and returned to her enclosure.

Of course, The Hangover scene was funnier.
