(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. (Read more Siegfried and Roy stories.)
