Mike The Tiger

  • 41 photos
  • The tradition of Mike the Tiger began in 1936 when LSU students raised $750 to purchase a Bengal tiger from the Little Rock, Ark. zoo to have a live mascot corresponding with the football team's nickname. The tiger was "Mike" to honor Mike Chambers, the LSU athletics trainer at the time. Mike I lived for 20 years and, to date, is the longest lived in the line of "Mikes." Mike VI is the current mascot and lives in state-of-the-art habitat north of Tiger Stadium. Mike I - 1936-1956 Mike II - 1956-1958 Mike III - 1958-1976 Mike IV - 1976-1990 Mike V - 1990-2007 Mike VI - 2007
