In an effort to prove, once and for all, that some people never fucking learn, Siegfried and Roy tempted fate one final time by bringing Montecore onstage for their farewell illusion.
Montecore, you may recall, was the tiger who mauled Roy — almost fatally — five years ago. Why?
The pair have said they believe Montecore sensed Horn was having a mini-stroke and was dragging him to safety, rather than attacking him. Animal experts have disputed that theory.
That theory is also disputed by everyone who is not bat-shit insane. Link.
