Many mourned the news of Mike VI’s passing Tuesday at the age of 11.
LSU’s live mascot had dealt with spindle cell sarcoma since May 2016. He underwent radiotherapy on June 1, 2016, and he was humanely euthanized in his night house by LSU’s attending veterinarian, David Baker, Ph.D.
On Saturday, tributes for Mike VI were seen throughout LSU’s campus before the Tigers hosted Southern Miss at Tiger Stadium. The LSU players will wear helmet decals in honor of Mike VI.
Check out some of the touching tributes by fans and LSU below.
