MGM Mirage officials have informed EGI that Siegfried and Roy have asked to be fed to their tigers upon their deaths. This revelation was revealed shortly before Roy Horn underwent surgery at the University Medical Center.
Roy Horn was bitten in the neck and dragged off stage by one of his tigers earlier this month during a performance. The 7 year old, 600-pound white tiger named Montecore attacked Horn midway through a performance at the Mirage. Fearing that the performer was in danger of dieing in surgery, MGM Mirage revealed Roy Horn’s last wishes; that he be used as feed for his white tigers.
Costar of the act, Siegfried Fischbacher is said to have the same clause in his will. The two performers believe that this is the best way to give back to the tigers that have provided them with so much fame and success.
In the wild, the White Tigers attack natives on a regular basis. Humans have secretly been used to feed the performing animals since the mid-eighties. The tigers have acquired a taste for human flesh, so the Mirage has been buying cadavers from the University Hospital for years.
Siegfried and Roy signed a lifetime contract with the Mirage in 2001. Few knew that part of the contract included the “Final Feeding” clause.

(Gil Le Bell on assignment in Brazil)
A number of companies are now marketing products that they claim have never been tested on animals. The products include a range of hair care products, such as shampoo and conditioner, as well as other personal hygiene items such as deodorant. The companies are hoping to appear environmentally conscious and PETA friendly with the “never been tested on animals” labeling.
Adequate testing is required before the FDA and USDA will allows these products to be marketed in the United States. EGI reporter Gil Le Bell has learned first hand the frightening truth about how these companies are complying with the federal guidelines without using animals to test their products.
While vacationing in Brazil earlier this month, Gil replied to a classified ad looking for Girl Scouts seeking money. Disguised in a brownie uniform, Gil was hired to work as a human lab rat. The sadistic testers proceeded to rub deodorant in his eyes and spray hair spray into his mouth. Next they gave him a number of paper cuts and made him wash his hair, rinse, condition, rinse, and repeat.
The testing lasted nearly 10 hours, for which Gil was paid the equivalent of $0.35 US. The picture at the right shows the effect that the testing had on Gil’s face.
PETA presented EGI with a statement saying “…although PETA does not condone the testing using Brazilian Girl Scouts, their treatment is much better than that which the lab animals receive when undergoing similar testing. It is better that a few hundred people suffer, rather than 1 animal.”
This report was filed from the Brazilian hospital where Gil is recovering from the ordeal.
