Illusionist Roy Horn has checked himself into a medical clinic in Germany as he continues rehabilitation and therapy for injuries he suffered when he was mauled by a tiger in 2003.

During one of his popular SIEGFRIED + ROY shows in Las Vegas with partner SIEGFRIED FISCHBACHER, the performer was attacked onstage by one of his tigers, MONTECORE.

Horn says, "Siegfried and I are thrilled to return to our home country and excited with the programs set forth by the great doctors and staff at the world-class Leonardis Clinic.

"The support we have received from our fans in Germany has been overwhelming and continues to inspire me daily."

The beloved entertainer has continued to maintain, since the accident, that the tiger did not intentionally mean to injure him.
