Easy There, Tiger!

Originally posted 06/13/2008 08:40AM

Who wants to tussle? Famed Vegas illusionists Siegfried and Roy have brought home five tiger cubs – and were recently seen cuddling with and (yes) nibbling on the adorable critters. (Roy Horn playfully chewed on one's ear.)

Siegfried Fishbacher said playing with the 15-pound, 6-week-old critters is therapeutic for his partner, who was seriously injured when he was mauled by a 380-pound tiger in 2003. "[This] gives him a reason to get up in the morning," Fishbacher told the Associated Press. The animals will be on exhibit – alongside lions, leopards and a black panther – as part of the duo's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage hotel and casino.
