All she wanted to do was use the ladies room.
Jenna Krehbiel went looking for a water closet while at the Shrine Circus and found one on the concourse of the arena.
But when she walked in she saw more than stalls, she saw a tiger just two feet from her.
The animal had escaped after its performance at the Bicentennial Center in Salina, Kansas.
It turns out the staff knew the tiger was out and had blocked off every door other than the one Jenna walked into.
Krehbiel told the Salina Journal “you don't expect to go in a bathroom door, have it shut behind you and see a tiger walking toward you."
Krehbiel says she didn't scream or run because she thought it would scare the tiger and make things worse.
Instead, she calmly walked back out and within a few minutes the animal was captured and returned to its enclosure.
No word on if she used the bathroom right then, or found another venue.
