After a four month battle with cancer, LSU announced Tuesday that Mike VI has passed away. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

BATON ROUGE – LSU's beloved live Tiger mascot, Mike VI, was euthanized Tuesday at the age of 11 following his four-month battle with cancer.

The announcement came from the primary caretakers of Mike VI, the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine on the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, campus.

Mike VI was diagnosed in late May 2016 with a spindle cell sarcoma, a type of cancer. On June 1, he was anesthetized and taken to Mary Bird Perkins - Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center for stereotactic radiotherapy, or SRT, which delivered a precise, concentrated dose of radiation to Mike's cancer. The radiation dose was delivered in a single treatment and optimized to avoid normal tissues surrounding Mike's cancer in order to reduce the risk complications.

"Let us Break Bread Together" The GBFTL plays it after every game win or lose. It's a cool tradition.

I'd also like to say how sorry I am to the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine. I know these folks and the commitment they put in to caring for animals. They helped me out once and I've never forgotten their professionalism and dedication. Best Vet School in the Country.
