Siegfried & Roy Deny Trainer's Allegations That They Caused Horrific 2003 Tiger Attack.


Siegfried & Roy are speaking out against their tiger handler’s allegations that Roy Horn was to blame for the infamous tiger attack that almost killed him in 2003.

Horn, 74, was mauled and dragged offstage by Montecore, a 400-pound Siberian tiger, during a live show on Oct. 3, 2003, ending Siegfried & Roy’s successful Las Vegas run.

Following the attack, Horn adamantly said the tiger “saved my life” by dragging him to safety after he suffered a stroke. But trainer Chris Lawrence told the Hollywood Reporter in March that Horn made an error onstage that almost cost him his life.


Entertainers Siegfried & Roy abused tigers and other endangered animals to entertain people to make money.

In 2003 Roy was mauled by Montecore, a bred white tiger, which ended their career in Las Vegas.

Now the tiger handler, another abuser, comes out in the open, saying the mauling was not an accident but an attack because Roy didn’t follow procedures.
