GONNA HANG OUT THE OBITS ON SIEGFRIED’S DECLINE
The unmauled half of Siegfried and Roy has quickly joined the other one in departing the stage for the last time aged 81. The magician duo were known for their Las Vegas live shows, which often included tigers. One such tiger decided to maul Roy Horn in 2003, ending their act, but did it in such a way that humans couldn’t be sure if it was intentional harm or accidental injuries in the act of trying to help. And thats how the smartest tiger in the world got to live to old age. Horn died last year of covid, and Siegfried died 48 hours after announcing hospice care for terminal pancreatic cancer. Lucky break for unique picks Gone Solo.
