R.I.P.: MIKE V, LSU MASCOT.

Mike V, who was really, really old by Tiger standards, died sometime during the night at his habitat at LSU. Mike was seventeen, and hopefully is now shredding muntjac and wild boar on the hunting fields of the afterlife.

Considering the $25 million LSU shelled out for the mascot's habitat, they're undoubtedly looking for a new Mike as we speak. Animal rights activists be damned--having a live tiger on campus is just badassness no matter how you cast it, and no one's gone more out of their way than LSU, which has constructed what amounts to a mini-zoo for their pampered mascot.


There's a Roy Horn joke somewhere in here, but we just can't find it. RIP, Mike.
