For S and R: Good, Bad, and Controversial News

For Siegfried & Roy – Good News, Bad News and Controversy

First, the good news . . .

The Associated Press issued great news last night: Roy Horn walked under his own power and unassisted into Steve Wynn’s new Las Vegas Resort to see Avenue Q. 

Roy’s birthday on October 3rd, will also mark the two-year
anniversary of the terrible on-stage attack by Montecore, a 400 pound
tiger.

Siegfried attended the presentation with Roy and walked along side but did not need to help or support his partner.

The Duo’s manager said Roy’s rehabilitation and progress will make October 3rd even more special.

“We’re going to continue to celebrate his birthday and his life,”
Mr. Yuman said, emphasizing the inspirational elements of Horn overcoming
adversity.

Roy has been walking without the aid of a rolling walker after
months of six- to eight-hour days in physical rehabilitation.

Next, the bad news  . . .

This news came at the same time word of Roy’s treating physician passed away following complications from Diabetes.  The Insider suggests this will jeopardize Roy’s continued rehabilitation. 

The UPI says the doctor treating Roy Horn since his near fatal tiger attack two
years ago has died, putting Horn`s recovery in jeopardy, ‘The Insider’
reports.

Dr. Albert Scheller removed cartilage from Horn`s knee and harvested
healthy stem cells to grow new ones, then re-implanted the new cells
into Horn`s damaged knee, the NBC celebrity news show reported.

Dr. Scheller, who suffered from diabetes, died last month while visiting Siegfried and Roy at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.

And finally, the controversial news . . .

A PETA press-release demands
Feld Entertainment – producers of Siegfried & Roy as well as the
Ringling Brothers Circus – release results of a necropsy of Gildah, the
duo’s long-time elephant star.  Inside Magic brought you Siegfried & Roy’s statement marking the elephant’s passing last month.

PETA and Feld are in highly-publicized litigation over Feld’s
alleged mistreatment of animals in the circus and other productions.  A
court recently awarded PETA $51,000.00 in sanctions after it found
Feld’s attorneys had intentionally obstructed discovery in their
lawsuit.  You can read more about the judicial sanctions against Feld
in Inside Magic’s article here.

Feld did not issue any statement in response to PETA’s most recent demand.
