A 600-pound tiger that attacked Roy Horn of the Las Vegas act Siegfried & Roy is expected to be released from quarantine today, Clark County officials said.

The 7-year-old white tiger 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 at a Las Vegas hospital.
