The news of Mike the Tiger’s cancer diagnosis has rocked the SEC mascot world — and quite possibly the entire SEC . LSU fans have sent an outpouring of support to the live tiger who lives in an enclosure on the LSU campus.
SEC mascots have sent their love too. The latest well wishes come from Texas A&M mascot Reveille.
The collie, which serves as the highest ranking member of the corps. of cadets at Texas A&M, sent Mike the Tiger flowers and a card giving her well wishes.
Earlier this week, LSU announced Mike the Tiger VI had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. They caught the disease early and LSU plans to have the tiger undergo treatment that will hopefully extend his life by a year or two. Without treatment, the tiger would likely die within a few months.
