LSU may have found its next tiger

LSU is one step closer to having its next live tiger mascot.

According to a university relations news release, the school has identified a possible tiger. The 9-month-old male rescue tiger has Siberian and Bengal characteristics. He weighs about 160 pounds and is currently located at a sanctuary in Okeechobee, Florida.

The tiger wouldn’t be transported to LSU until its tiger habitat updates are complete, which would be sometime in August. After he’s brought to campus, he’ll be kept in the LSU night house for about a week for quarantine and acclimation, and if he gets past this point, he’ll be named Mike VII.
