Gory details

A number of folks have been here looking for more about the tiger attack on Roy of Siegfried & Roy. In particular, they want photos, which I don't think they're going to get any time soon. I assume cameras are forbidden in the show, and if anyone in the audience had a phone cam or other mini-cam concealed, they haven't come forward with their pictures yet. Perhaps there's a video that was being made by the show itself, but I doubt they'll ever release that.

There's an interesting account of the story coming from Steve Wynn, the builder of the Mirage Hotel and Casino, where S&R held court up until the tragic incident. According to Wynn, it all started when the tiger got too interested in a female audience member with big hair.

As Sarah of Pinktalk put it so well yesterday, Bad hair kills.
