Texas circus worker bitten by Bengal tiger

(Laredo, Texas) Dec. 5, 2004 - A circus staffer working at a show in Texas was injured after getting too close to the tiger cage.

The worker's hand was bitten and mangled by a Bengal tiger. She had to be rushed to the hospital, but is recovering.

The tiger belongs to the Great Circus of China. Circus managers say the tiger was properly caged at the time. They added that workers know not to go into the cages.

They say the incident won't have any affect on the show.
