I saw some social media posts from Penn (and Teller) about this last night:

Roy Horn died from Covid-19 complications last May.

Both Siegfried & Roy are now gone. S&R invented the full length magic show headlining Vegas. A very different style but without S&R there is no P&T in Vegas. Pure showbiz and pure class. He was a team. We are a team. As Tolstoy wrote -Successful magic teams are all the same

Might have to watch Father of the Pride - cartoon series based on their lions, I remember it being pretty funny!

RIP, there act was a bit frightening dealing with Lions without a cage.

Even subdued Lions just like cats can be temperamental and might lash out. Been hit with a few cat paws in my time, and they do hurt.

Remember a circus act in Oz, pre health and safety days, and the Lion on a lead, got off it and ran at the crowds, but luckily dived out the tent, for a drink. water not lager, and was re-captured

We thought it was part of the act. LOL

You obviously forgot what happened to Roy.

A good point, forgot about that incident. Rob.

Cats can be real vicious, we used to have a black one we got in the cat and dog home, wife wanted it, and it was a nasty bit of work.
It disappeared one night and never returned, sorted. No more cats.
