Roy of Siegfried and Roy critical after mauling
Summary: 

A 380-pound tiger attacked Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy during a live performance on the Las Vegas strip.  The big cat damaged Horn's artery and crushed his windpipe.  Horn survived but was left partially paralyzed.  The USDA later issued a letter of noncompliance to the illusionists' production company for failing to erect a barrier between the exotic animals and the audience.
