PETA issued the following statement on Tuesday afternoon asking LSU not to replace Mike VI with another live mascot on campus, according to WBRZ.

Mike VI passed away on Tuesday after a battle with cancer.
quote:

"This sad day could mark a kind new beginning for LSU, where sensitive, intelligent tigers have been reduced to game-day props for decades," PETA said in a statement. "PETA is calling on the university to honor Mike VI's legacy by making him the last live mascot to be locked up in captivity and paraded around an unruly stadium. The last thing LSU should do is condemn yet another tiger to a lifetime of exploitation."
LSU has already said they are searching for a live mascot, Mike VII.

"condemn yet another tiger to a lifetime of exploitation" - clearly they have never seen his habitat or his care. They can piss up a rope.

Well I may tend to agree if we were to get a cub from the wild. But we don't. Never have. We actually give the tiger a better life than it would have otherwise.

I suggest we put PETA's directors in the travel cage until Mike VII is brought to campus.

I love the animal activists who are so up their own arse and set on a predetermined stance that they are willing to condemn Tigers to much worse situations and captive habitats. Very few rescue reserves/sanctuaries offer a fraction of what the "Mike" life provides. As far being Mike goes in the Tiger World it is the equivalent of being "trapped" in Hollywood as an A List Actor. Mike lives better than 98% of the Louisiana population.

PETA is a money making machine for Ingrid Newkirk. She raked in $43 million in donations last year, and has a largely volunteer work force of delusional young people. Horribly misguided bunch of lunatics working under a greedy leader!

I couldn't give a crap about PETA. They are a bunch of idiots as far as I'm concerned.

I'm with you, but I'm worried that the recent trend of SJW activism on college campuses has infected our beloved LSU. I think it's 50/50 that the leaders have the balls to place another cat on campus.

I'm sure the person that released a statement enjoys the leather seats in their car, the leather couch at their home, along with the sushi and pork tenderloins they recently ate. Not to mention all the wasps and bees and cockroaches they kill on a regular basis

Exactly. I doubt they live lives without meat, eggs, dairy, leather, wool, cosmetics or drugs tested on animals, in houses and offices full of ants, cockroaches and fleas. I wonder if they take antibiotics when they get sick-- seems cruel to bacteria.

have been reduced to game-day props for decades... I guess they don't realize Mike only gets in the cage to go into the stadium if he wants to, and he hasn't been to a game in years.
