SHARE Horn in rehabilitation at clinic in Germany

Illusionist Roy Horn has checked into a German rehabilitation facility 18 months after a near-fatal tiger mauling during a performance left him partially paralyzed.

"Siegfried and I are thrilled to return to our home country and excited with the programs set forth by the great doctors and staff at the world-class Leonardis Clinic," Horn said in a statement Friday. "The support we have received from our fans in Germany has been overwhelming and continues to inspire me daily."

No details of the 60-year-old Horn's condition or treatment were released. The rehabilitation facility is in Bad Hellibrun.
