    Mike VI, LSU's live tiger mascot, is slowly succumbing to to cancer but well-wishes continue to pour in, including flowers from University of Texas' famed live steer mascot Bevo XV.

    Mike VI was put into hospice care Monday and will not be in the outdoor section of his habitat. His handler, Dr. David Baker, said last week his cancer has returned and he has one to two months to live.

    LSU fans have left numerous flowers and cards near his habitat between Tiger Stadium and the Pete Maravich Assembly Center and his situation is trending on Facebook.

    Mike VI came to LSU in 2007 but was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in May for which he received treatments during the summer.

    That is horrible, horrible news. So sorry to know that beautiful animal will soon die. I hope they can prevent him from suffering.

    There is a point where they won't let him suffer.

    They said right now he feels fine and has no idea just how sick he is... which is good... once they notice a change in his behavior the plan is to do the right thing.

    I recently had to make the same decision with my 15 year old dog... it's tough with animals because, unless you adopt an african elephant or a giant sea tortes, you already know that you will outlive them by a wide margin and that your time with them is relatively short.

    Yes, it is hard to put down an animal that is part of your heart...or even someone else's heart. What I truly get distressed about is when we humans go to far to great a length(IMO) to keep a sick animal alive via extensive meds/operations/etc. that are hard on the animal, simply so we as humans can delay the pain of the loss. That is the definition of selfishness.

    They have also announced that they are looking for a Mike VII. But it's hard for me to see how they can do better than Mike VI. He has been the most beloved of them all. His habitat that he lives in is something to behold if you've never seen it.
