Those attending a traveling circus in Linfen, Shanxi province over the weekend got a bit more excitement than they bargained for when a pissed off tiger broke out of its cage.
Video from the performance shows three animals, a bear, a tiger, and what appears to be dog(?), inside of a large domed cage with trainers. The men apparently angered the tiger, causing it to go mad and somehow break out of the steel enclosure.
Panic quickly ensued as audience members frantically rushed to get away from the dangerous animal. In video from the scene, the tiger can be seen attacking one person from behind before a man comes up and tries to whack it with a big stick.
Eventually, circus workers were able to catch the tiger and get it back inside a cage. Local officials said that two kids were hurt in the terrifying incident.
In the future, e would strongly recommend that our readers stay away from all circuses and tigers in China. Last week, an elderly man in Henan nearly had his hand bitten off after trying to feed a circus tiger through the bars of its cage.
