A trip through the history of Mike the Tiger
BATON ROUGE - Despite the announcement Monday that LSU's live tiger mascot is to be treated for a rare form of cancer, Mike VI will remain one of just two live tigers left representing U.S. universities in the country. LSU's first tiger arrived in the fall of 1936 after nearly two years of planning by university officials. Through the years, LSU has had to replace the mascot a total of five teams, giving LSU a roster of six "Mikes" that have represented the school.
As the current Mike iteration prepares to receive medical attention from LSU veterinarians and Mary Bird Perkins - Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center, here's a trip through all of the generations of LSU live tiger mascots.
