I'll admit to being surprised not to see this out here yet, but since I'm going to Vegas this weekend I thought I'd bring it up.

I hadn't heard anything about this, until my Mom called me and said, "I guess you won't be seeing Siegfried and Roy this weekend", and told me the news.

As much as I can't imagine being Roy, I can't imagine what being in the audience must have been like. A co-worker and I agreed that our first instinct would have been to run like hell!

I guess this tops the story from a couple of years back when two of their tigers turned on each other...

I heard on the local radio this morning that they thought it was part of the act.

Was there a Simpson episode of the tiger having a flashback of Siegfried & Roy capturing him and then going nuts and attacked?

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.

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.

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.
