Rest assured, America, whenever there’s a sick mascot deserving of our sympathy, there’s always an opportunity for PETA.

I couldn’t get the link to load but I’m assuming it’s about the LSU tiger having cancer? I hate PETA but dragging a caged tiger into a stadium full of drunken Cajuns regularly might not be great for the animal.
I agree with you. PETA is a bunch of wackjobs but full grown tigers really don’t do well in captivity in general and being brought in front of 100,000 screaming people can’t do them any good at all.
Come on that one that Roy tamed was mellow and happy.
He has only been to 1 game in the last 2 years – they have a beautiful facility that he stays in with a waterfall caves etc – he is well taken care of.
Freakin’ Peta, man. I can’t believe Katniss chose him over that other dude…
Ha! + a hunerd. Thts why I love this blog!
Seriously – that’s one amazing facility Mike lives in.
And the PETA Peckers beclown themselves yet again.
Feed the little twerps to Mike.
“Mike has the best health care in Louisiana.”
Didn’t PETA suggest that UGA use an animatronic dog instead of a live Bulldog? Yeah…I have no use for those clowns.
Call me a sicko, but the way they treat that tiger, with the crowd noise and the cheerleaders on top of the cage, I always secretly hoped Mike would get ahold of one fo the cheerleader’s legs just one time.
I’m sure he’s on a serious dose of “Kitty Ludes” when they haul him into the stadium.
You raise an interesting point. How can ANY insurance executive authorize the bringing of a live tiger (doped up or not) into an enclosed stadium full of 100,000 people? I cannot believe LSU has any coverage for this. The way LSU does this (with cheerleaders on top of the cage, etc.) is actually outrageous if you think about it. And if someone got killed by the tiger–LSU would undoubtedly plead “governmental immunity” as a defense.
How about an LSU alum insurance executive whose company gets comped box seats?
Who would you rather try to control: Mike in a cage or Ralphie the buffalo on a rope?
