Illusionist Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy Fame Has Tested Positive for Coronavirus

Looking back on that fateful night in October 2003, Horn told the outlet, "I had high blood pressure at that time, and because of the energy level of the show, I got excited and passed out onstage and fell, unfortunately."

"Montecore looked at me with his big blue eyes and was confused, and so he picked me up by the neck," Horn said. "He brought me to the side so he could attend to me."

"But we need to rectify — he never attacked me. If a tiger attacks you, you are finished," he added to the outlet.

In 2009, Horn took the stage one last time for a "final bow" with Fischbacher — and Montecore, the very tiger that left him a "little bit handicapped," as he previously told Las Vegas Weekly.
