Siegfried & Roy Revive The Disappearing Face Act For One Night Only

Can you guess how I feel about wild animals being forced to perform in a Las Vegas show? If you chose “not in favor,” you guessed right!

Therefore, I can’t say I’m excited to report that Siegfried & Roy returned to the stage on Saturday for a one night only star-studded charity show.

Because they seem to have a thing for tradition, the duo featured the very same 380-pound Bengal tiger that mauled Roy back in October 2003. In case you forgot, Roy suffered deep wounds to his neck, massive blood loss, a crushed windpipe and a minor stroke after the tiger brutally attacked him.

The special performance took place at the Bellagio resort and was attended by Danny DeVito and wife Rhea Perlman, Hilary Duff, Kristin Davis and Teri Hatcher, who auctioned off a dinner at her L.A. residence prepared by Wolfgang Puck.

The silver lining of this story is that the gala benefited the Cleveland Clinic’s Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, which helped treat Horn.

And so to close, I’d like to remind both Siegfried and Roy of that famous expression we have here in the states: Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. Don’t say we didn’t warn you, guys.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
