It was 10 years ago that Roy Horn of the celebrated duo Siegfried and Roy stood on the Las Vegas stage. Suddenly, he was no longer standing.
Instead, he was being hauled off the stage in the mouth of a white tiger named Montecore.

But how is he doing a decade after that horrific accident?

Here's the main thing: Even though a 600-lb. white tiger tore into his neck, punctured arteries and dragged him half-conscious across a stage in front of a live audience, legendary Las Vegas performer Roy Horn is adamant that the animal, named Montecore, never meant to hurt him. All those stories, all those headlines, he says, got it wrong. "Montecore," he insists, "saved my life."
