(Newser) – Four years after a horrific mauling by a 600-pound white tiger at the Mirage hotel almost killed Las Vegas showman Roy Horn, he and partner Siegfried Fischbacher appear to be planning a comeback, reports People magazine. "A good magician never lets the cat out of the bag," the still-recovering Horn, 63, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal when asked about future plans.

"Act surprised when you hear about it." Siegfried, 68, said plans were "in the experimental stage, conceptual." Horn is determined to make a full recovery. His daily regimen includes physical therapy, exercise, and games of racquetball. "All the doctors say what he's doing now is impossible," Fischbacher said.
