Texas mascot shows support to Mike VI
TEXAS- The University of Texas Silver Spurs showed their support to LSU's Mike VI when the news broke that the tiger has cancer.
The Texas Longhorns' mascot along with the Texas Silver Spurs, Bevo XV, sent Mike VI a purple and gold flower arrangement to show their support and love to Mike VI.
The arrangement was sent along with a note that reads: "Mike and All the Many People Who Loved Him, Remain in Our Thoughts and Prayers. - Bevo XV and The University of Texas Silver Spurs"
A thank you note was written and shared on Mike VI's Twitter account using the hash tag #MascotsStickTogether.

A year ago, Bevo XIV died of cancer. Mike VI was diagnosed with cancer this spring after a tumor was found on the right side of his head. Last week LSU veterinary officials announced that the tumor has grown and the cancer has spread to his right rear leg, his neck and lungs. Officials said that Mike VI has one to two months left to live. On Monday, the tiger mascot was transitioned into hospice care and taken out of his yard for the public to see. The tiger will eventually be euthanzied.
