LATEST: The tiger that attacked showman Roy Horn in Las Vegas, Nevada, earlier this month (03OCT03) has been freed from quarantine for the first time since the incident.

A day after Horn, one half of the SIEGFRIED + ROY double act, was given a 95 per cent chance of surviving the tiger-inflicted wounds that almost killed him, the beast, MONTECORE has been given a reprieve.

The tiger had been confined to his private quarters at the Siegfried + Roy Secret Garden attraction at the MIRAGE hotel and casino.

Now he's allowed to roam around the Secret Garden freely with his mother and sister.
