|Roy Horn, of the fantastically popular and long running Las Vegas casino act Siegfried & Roy was mauled by a tiger earlier this week after veteran cat performer Montecore grabbed Roy by the throat and dragged him off-stage.|
Now it has been reveled by animal behavior experts that the tiger went for the jugular vein in an attempt to kill Roy. This discovery came after Roy pleaded, as he was being taken into the ambulance, not to kill the animal. Partner Siegfried concurred with Roy’s sentiment and said to the press that the animal took Roy offstage in an attempt to help him after he slipped on stage.
The very popular Las Vegas act has now been suspended indefinitely, and sources report that staff and crew were advised to look for employment elsewhere. Roy Horn is hospitalized in critical condition.
