Exactly 10 years to the day that Roy Horn — of the famous Siegfried and Roy Las Vegas show — was mauled by a a tiger, he fed that same tiger.
ETobtained the picture.
When the Las Vegas showman almost lost his life on October 3, 2003, he pleaded that the tiger, Montecore, not be killed. His wishes were honored, and after years of therapy and rehabilitation, Roy has defied all odds.
Although his partner Siegfried was unscathed in the attack, the duo who had a lifetime contract with The Mirage, had agreed to only do the magic illusion show with one another — not alone.
Roy celebrates his 69th birthday on Thursday and of course, Siegfried will be by his side.
