Unknown to Kimble, the police are hot on his trail, after a policeman saw him get on a bus. Kimble seeks a job at Jungleland, a small town circus in Morgantown, Nebraska featuring animal attractions. It is run by Major Alan Fielding (actor Laurence Naismith), an animal trainer who performs with a tiger, and Harry Craft (actor Steve Forrest), the somewhat shady business manager. Kimble, using the name Nick Peters, gets a job doing minor chores such as cleaning cages and feeding animals.

Unfortunately, the business is not going well, and Craft tells Fielding he will have to sell Jaipur, his favorite tiger. Fielding loves the tiger, and considers him the top attraction, and strongly opposes this move. Craft tells him it is too late, the deal is done.

When Lt. Gerard arrives with Kimble's photo, Craft falsely tells Gerard he has not seen Kimble. He has a plan for Kimble to get caught with news photographers present, so Jungleland will gain the notoriety of the Biograph Theater where John Dillinger was killed by police, and bring in paying customers. He tells Fielding that if this works, he will not have to sell Jaipur. Kimble becomes aware of the police presence and wants to run, but Craft tells him it is too dangerous. Craft tells Kimble he wants to help him, and urges Kimble to hide on the premises until the police clear out, while he arranges the dramatic capture of Kimble.
