Illusionist Roy Horn has celebrated the 10th anniversary of his onstage tiger attack in Las Vegas by releasing a new photograph of himself posing with the big cat that almost killed him.

The Siegfried & Roy star was mauled and carried offstage by white tiger Montecore during a show on 3 October, 2003, at The Mirage.

Horn was left critically injured and sustained severe blood loss, but he has always defended the tiger, insisting no harm should come to the big cat.

Ten years after the incident, Horn, 69, has released a new photo of him feeding Montecore at Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden at The Mirage in Las Vegas to U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight.
