Siegfried and roy dating
Roy Horn, (R) of the famous Siegfried and Roy magic duo, was performing on stage at the Mirage with a nine-year-old white tiger when the 700-pound tiger grabbed Horn by the neck and dragged him off stage in Las Vegas on October 3, 2003.
Horn, who was celebrating his 59th birthday, was rushed to University Medical Center. Siegfried and Roy, both from Germany, have performed in Las Vegas for the past 30 years.

The zoo says Future — one of two male African white lions loaned permanently by Siegfried and Roy in 1998 — was put down Thursday.
The tiger's teeth damaged an artery that carries oxygen to the brain, and crushed Horn's trachea.
Horn has said he fainted during the performance and the tiger was trying to help him.
The 7-year-old tiger bit into the performer's neck and dragged him off the stage.
The illusionist sustained four deep wounds and had a stroke.
