Former lion trainer says Siegfried & Roy’s 2003 attack didn’t happen

In 2003, it was a career-ending attack; A white tiger mangled magician Roy Horn, half of the duo Siegfried & Roy, on a Las Vegas stage in front of 1,500 fans. Almost 16 years later, one of the handlers for the show says it wasn’t the tiger at fault for the mauling, but Horn himself. Chris Lawrence, who worked with Horn and his partner, Siegfried Fischbacher, on the show, told that Horn was to blame for the attack. The official story was Horn suffered a stroke and the tiger reacted to the health issue and tried to protect Horn. The show and subsequent attack happened on Oct. 3, 2003, which was Horn’s 59th birthday. The tiger, Montecore, a 400-pound, 7-foot long white tiger, attacked because Horn had not been spending as much time with the supposed tamed animals before the shows, Lawrence alleges. As for Montecore, the tiger died in 2014.
