Apparently LSU has found the replacement for the deceased Mike V (Take that PETA!).
“We have identified a tiger,” said Ginger Guttner, LSU School of Veterinary Medicine spokeswoman, “and plans are under way to transfer that tiger to LSU sometime in August.”
They would like to get Mike VI on campus, registered, through orientation and make sure he doesn’t kill anyone for the first two weeks before he can start getting his mascot on.
“Once the tiger is here and gone through a (two-week) quarantine will it be formally introduced,” Guttner said. “And only then will it become Mike VI.”
