Surviving member of world-renowned, big cat illusion act Siegfried and Roy, Siegfried Fischbacher, has died. He was 81 years of age. Mr. Fischbacher reportedly was suffering from terminal pancreatic cancer.

For years, Siegfried and Roy were the quintessential Las Vegas act, combining magic, big cats and plenty of glitz and glamor.
