Women stumbles upon a tiger in the toilet

OTHERS might have panicked. Others might have picked the cat up by its tail and skinned it. But when Jenna Krehbiel walking into the toilets after the evening show at the Isis Shrine Circus on Saturday at the Salina Bicentennial Centennial Center in Kansas and saw a tiger, she just turend and walked back out again, as one might when encountering Noel Edmonds signing autographs.

She tells her local paper:

“I went in to use the bathroom, and a lady came in to get her daughter out and said there was a tiger loose. I didn’t know it was in the bathroom, and I walked in the (open) door, which closed right after I had walked in. I saw the tiger; it was at most two feet in front of me, and I turned around calmly and walked back toward the door. Someone opened the door and said get out… You don’t expect to go in a bathroom door, have it shut behind you and see a tiger walking toward you.”

Apparently the tiger was not so well trained that it was using the ladies toilets. (If it were, it had forgotten its book and handbag.) Rather, it had escaped and was on the prowl.

So. Why didn’t Krehbiel scream? Was it fear that caught her voice? Nothing of it. She says she was cool because she’s trained as a social worker:

“I’m always on alert, and it was easy to walk out; that’s how I am trained.”

She’s trained to walk away? She adds:

“My daughter wanted to know if it had washed its hands. That was her only concern. I think that shows the thoughts of children and that they wouldn’t have known there was danger.”

Of course this is America and we wonder what would have occurred had the tiger been an anxious male holding a gun?
