    Dec 26th, 2003 TORONTO (CP) - Visitors to the Toronto Zoo's annual Boxing Day tour didn't expect to come so close to a Siberian tiger.

    Visitors briefly found themselves face-to-face with the tiger, separated from the animal by nothing more than a metre-high fence.

    "One of our gates was left open and a female tiger got out briefly," Calvin White, general manager of the zoo, said Friday.

    The tiger roamed between the high fence of the animal enclosure and a lower fence meant to keep people at a safe distance for several minutes, giving visitors some close-up video shots.

    It was "a little bit scary," said Shari Akow, a zoo visitor.
