Your last instinct when you see something dangerous (like an escaped tiger at a zoo) is to run towards it for an epic smackdown.
Rajinder Birk, a Calgary, Alberta shop owner, becomes one of the 1% who'd tackle the proverbial tiger when he locks two armed robbers inside his store with him. Armed with a baseball bat he corners the panicked thieves until a stray bullet nearly kills him. The robbers finally manage to shot their way of the locked door.
Meanwhile, a Georgia hotel clerk keeps a cooler head when a masked bandit robs the hotel where she works.
