RIP Mike the Tiger V

Today Mike VI, the official mascot of the LSU Tigers, passed away at the age of 11 years old after a 4 month battle with cancer. Louisiana State released a statement that Mike was euthanized in his "night house" (which, by all accounts, is substantially larger than my New York City apartment) by Dr. David Baker of LSU's School of Veterinary Medicine.

Mike was only one of two tigers that doubled as live college mascots and the only one to live on campus.

Rest in Peace Mike VI.
