Mirage Welcomes New Leopard Cub Java to Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden


The Mirage welcomes its newest additions to Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat – white, white-striped and golden tiger cubs! The public will be able to see these rare and adorable cubs in a special nursery created for them in the Secret Garden beginning Friday, June 13, 2008, which happens to be Siegfried’s 69th birthday.

“We are delighted to welcome these cubs to their new home at the Secret Garden,” said Scott Sibella, President of The Mirage. “They make a wonderful addition to Siegfried & Roy’s animal family.”

Roy said, “While we no longer perform nightly, our conservation efforts to save and care for these magnificent creatures are part of our daily life. These new cubs are a gift from the universe and it brings us great joy to share them with the world.”

“I am honored that our tigers will go on exhibit for my birthday and just in time for Father’s Day weekend,” said Siegfried.

Plans to involve Clark County School District students in the naming of a cub will be announced in the form of a contest at a later date.
