Illusionist Roy Horn walks unassisted into theater

Illusionist Roy Horn made a slow, unassisted stroll into a Las Vegas theater, taking another step in his recovery from a near-fatal tiger mauling 23 months ago.

Horn "methodically" walked about 100 yards into the Thursday evening performance of "Avenue Q" at the Wynn Las Vegas resort, said Bernie Yuman, longtime manager of the "Siegfried & Roy" show.

He was accompanied by his partner, Siegfried Fischbacher, and casino mogul Steve Wynn.

Horn, 60, has been walking without the aid of a rolling walker after months of six- to eight-hour days in physical rehabilitation, Yuman said. His injuries included a damaged neck artery and a crushed windpipe.

He has made other public appearances in recent months.

Horn was partially paralyzed when a 380-pound white tiger attacked him and dragged him by the neck during a performance of the "Siegfried & Roy" show at The Mirage resort.
