LSU’s men’s and women’s sports teams are called the Fighting Tigers and Lady Tigers, respectively. The university’s football team plays its home games in Tiger Stadium. The school encouraged fans to share their “memories, stories and photos” of the tiger mascot on social media. The 420-pound tiger was 2 years old when it arrived at LSU in 2007, donated by an Indiana animal sanctuary. In the history of the school there were successively six tiger life mascots until now, since 1936. The first of them, Mike I, was temporarily kidnapped by Tulane fans before a Tiger-Green Wave football game. Dr. David Baker of the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine announced now that the school immediately began the search for Mike VII, expected to be donated from a rescue facility.
