I hate to admit it, but I kinda chuckled when I read this just out of the sheer irony.
That said, my prayers are with Roy Horn. A fine entertainer (I saw his show a few years back) and from all accounts, a pretty stand-up guy.
"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
Here (sfgate.com) is an article from Tuesday afternoon. Although still in critical condition, apparently Roy is conscious & able to communicate. There are comments in the article from Siegfried, who feels that the tiger became confused, & doesn't blame the tiger for acting instinctively. There's also a report that on the way to the hospital, Roy told the paramedics that he didn't want the tiger to be harmed. It's all very sad.
Originally posted by Net Hack SlasherWas there a Simpson episode of the tiger having a flashback of Siegfried & Roy capturing him and then going nuts and attacked?
You're thinking of "Anastasia", the white tiger who snapped and shredded Gunter and Ernst at Mr. Burns' Casino. That was in "$pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling)" (1F08).
I wonder if they will edit that out now.
