Horn was injured by the 380-pound tiger during a live performance by Siegfried & Roy at The Mirage hotel-casino in 2003. Roy maintains the tiger named, Montecore, did not attack him but was trying to drag him to safety after he experienced a stroke.

“The world has lost one of its most majestic creatures and I have lost a brother,” Horn said in a statement Tuesday. “I will forever believe it was his concern for my safety and well-being that caused him to act as he did on that night long ago. We spent many hours together and he never failed to bring me great joy and wonderment. It was my great honor to be beside him at the end. He is now playing with his siblings in white tiger heaven.” source
