Signaled thumb’s up after a second surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, two days after being savagely mauled by a white tiger during a performance, according to a family friend. Horn remained in critical but stable condition at University Medical Center in Las Vegas, about two miles north of the Mirage hotel-casino.

A 600-pound seven-year-old male tiger grabbed the performer’s forearm about halfway into the Friday night show at the Mirage, witnesses said. When Horn tried to fend the tiger off with his microphone — hitting the animal in the face and saying “no, no” — it lunged and bit him on the neck and dragged him offstage, causing massive bleeding, they said. Handlers sprayed the tiger with a fire extinguisher to separate him from Roy, who was conscious when he was rushed from the hotel to undergo about two hours of surgery. 슬롯

Even as he was being attacked by the tiger, he showed concern for the audience by trying to remain calm and not do anything that might provoke the tiger to attack anyone else. As Horn was being led away by paramedics, he said: “Don’t kill the cat,” according to Amy Fink, a family friend who came by the hospital after the surgery. Fink was one of 600 people who attended Horn’s birthday party Thursday evening in a showroom at the Mirage. The entertainer turned 59 on Friday.

Late Saturday night, Siegfried and Roy’s longtime manager announced the S&R spectacle, as they called it, would be suspended indefinitely. Everyone who works for the show was told they should probably look for a job somewhere else.
