Mike the Tiger showing improvement after radiation treatment


The LSU Tigers were pretty devastated by the news that live mascot Mike the Tiger was diagnosed with cancer and given only two years to live. However, it looks like the Tigers and their fans could take some solace in knowing that he has shown some improvement after his radiation treatment.

It was reported by Rebekah Allen of The Advocated that the swelling on Mike VI’s face, which displaced one of his eyes, had subsided, meaning that the inflammation could have reduced or the tumor could have shrunk in size.

However, his outlook is still pretty grim as the tiger still has an expectancy of up to two years with the terminal illness.

“Will it be six months? Will it be eight months? Will it be two years and two months?” David Baker, Mike the Tiger’s veterinarian, said. “There’s no way to know.”

This is pretty good news for Mike and gives fans a number of months before he finally does pass away. Let’s hope he can make at least one appearance at a LSU home game this year.
