Roy Meets Tiger Attacker

Illusionist ROY HORN has come face to face with the white tiger who almost ended his life last year (OCT03) - for the first time.

The German magician was mauled by tiger MONTECORE onstage during a live show in Las Vegas and has spent the past nine months fighting for life.

The tearful 59-year-old patted and chatted to the big cat as part of a TV documentary on his recovery, which will be aired on the first anniversary of the tiger attack, which left Horn clinically dead for a minute.

The reunion took place at SIEGFRIED + ROY'S SECRET GARDEN, housed at the MIRAGE hotel and casino in Las Vegas, where Montecore has been housed since the mauling.

Meanwhile, Horn has amazed medics, who feared he wouldn't be able to survive his terrifying injuries - he has regained the ability to speak and write.
