It has been a rough year for LSU’s live mascot, Mike the Tiger VI.
The school announced Mike had been diagnosed with cancer and that treatment would begin immediately to help extend the animal’s life by 1-2 years. Without treatment, Mike may not have made it to see Saturday’s event. Just what was that?
The beloved mascot celebrated his 11th birthday Saturday, complete with a special treat and some time outside.
There are definitely still some tough fights ahead for Mike, given his terminal diagnosis, but there is still time to celebrate some, and Mike certainly seems to have enjoyed his birthday treats and the love from the LSU faithful.
