LSU has new live tiger mascot

BATON ROUGE, La. — Louisiana State University officially has a new live tiger mascot on its campus.

The tiger arrived in Baton Rouge last week, coming from a rescue facility in Okeechobee, Florida. The university announced in a statement that the tiger began its “reign” as Mike VII on Monday.

It replaces a tiger that died in October following months of treatment for a rare form of cancer.
