Mike VI to have another CT scan this fall

LSU’s live mascot, Mike VI, will have another CT scan this fall, The Advocate reports. The tiger was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer earlier this summer, and he’s already received treatment for the tumor found on his face.

“The treatment Mike received on June 1 appears to have shrunk the tumor. His attitude, appetite and weight are all normal,” said Ginger Guttner, spokeswoman for the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, according to The Advocate. “We continue to monitor him daily and will do a follow up CT scan this fall to evaluate the current size of the tumor and determine if further treatment is necessary.”

It was announced earlier today that Mike would not attend any LSU home football games due to the illness.
