News about how a white tiger mauled Roy Horn, better known as Roy of Siegfried & Roy, even better known as "the one with dark hair," is shocking, but even more sad is that this happened on his birthday - October 3. Apparently, after introducing the debut of a 7 year-old white tiger, the tiger bit Horn's neck then dragged him off stage. Siegfried (Fischbacher) later appeared to say the performance was canceled. One spectator told the Las Vegas Review-Journal: "There were a couple of gasps, and people thought it was part of the act, and then it was real quiet. It literally drug him by his neck off the stage like a rag doll."
Roy is in critical but stable condition at University Medical Center. "The last place Roy would place blame would be with the animal," Bernie Yuman, manager of S&R, told Reuters.
The Siegfried and Roy site seems to be down, but the Mirage Resort site, where S&R perform, is up.
