Siegfried and Roy Welcome Five New Potential Attackers


Siegfried and Roy have adopted five new white tiger cubs and showed them off at their Las Vegas compound yesterday:

"Horn did not answer questions from reporters but played with the small tigers, holding them for the cameras, kissing them and nibbling on one's small ear."

Said Siegfried: "Our life is a purpose. Our purpose is to keep them from extinction. I'm always getting questions, 'Are they going to be in our show?' They are just a part of our life."

According to the AP, "The cubs — two white females, two white striped females and a golden male tiger — were to be taken to a nursery for public display at the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage hotel-casino. The exhibit houses lions, tigers, leopards and a black panther."

Siegfried and Roy are planning a "comeback" show scheduled for February 7, 2009.
