Uga, Smokey, Bevo - just some of the live mascots still on field. WHY NOT MIKE?!?

This is the ONE tradition I wish they would bring back to Tiger stadium. If it's the PETA nutjobs who are forcing LSUs hand and not allowing this to happen, how come they don't raise a stink about all the other live mascots in college football that still take the field?!?!

Bring the Up (or Down) votes.



Edit:
Before you respond to this post saying one is a wild animal vs the other 2 are just mutts and livestock. Stop it. No one is asking for Mike to be paraded around on a leash. He IS a wild animal - hence he has a cage.

You really don’t see a difference between a caged in endangered bengal tiger & a dog or cow on a leash?

You do know that just bc you care about the humane treatment of animals doesn’t make you a PETA supporter, right?

Because it’s a tiger and not an inbred mutt or a cow.

Correct if I'm wrong but at one time didn't they give Mike the option to get in the trailer and if he didn't then they didn't force him.They may have changed? I'm just asking a question.

Does any other university even have a live wild animal on campus?

Not sure it is in a tiger's best interest to take it to a college football game.

Tell you what, you go put a leash on him and walk him around.

Yes that changed some years ago. They don't give the option at all anymore.

Mike will never be back on the sideline

Ummm, that longhorn tried to gore a dog on the field. Mike never tried to eat UGA that I can recall.

Trashy post from a trashy poster.

Indian mounds being roped off is a less trashy melt.

A steer or dog don't need a cage so cut the wild animal excuse. He was pulled in a cage for decades.
Bring it back!

I believe Arkansas still has a wild hog in a pig pen at their stadium

Colorado has the Buffalo. Think he’s called Ralphie.

RIP Lacumba and Mischka

Still have Leo III and Lady and Joy.

I'm not sure if they are domesticated or not but you also have Ramses, Big Spur, Cam the Ram, Tusk, Stella, Aurora, and whatever eagle(s) Auburn has these days.

It's hard to believe that there are people this dumb. The 10 current upvoted suggest that there are plenty more of them roaming around too.
