A 600-pound tiger that attacked Roy Horn of "Siegfried and Roy" is expected to be released from quarantine Tuesday, Clark County officials said.
The 7-year-old white tiger named Montecore was isolated for 10 days to ensure it didn't have rabies, county spokeswoman Stacey Welling said.
The animal has been held inside The Mirage hotel-casino since the Oct. 3 attack that almost killed Horn.
The 59-year-old illusionist remained in critical condition Monday at a Las Vegas hospital.
MGM Mirage spokesman Alan Feldman said Monday the animal will continue to live at the Secret Garden, an animal habitat at The Mirage.
Immediately after the bloody attack, Horn reportedly said: "Don't harm the cat."
