Right in the middle of the Louisiana State University campus a tiger is prowling. Students can sleep safely, however, as this fearsome creature is the school's own mascot, Mike the Tiger. Following a tradition started in 1936 by Mike Chambers, for whom the tiger is named, Louisiana State is now housing its sixth tiger who they still trot out to bellow a fearsome roar at the school's football home games. Guests with concerns about animal welfare can see Mike in good confidence. The school has managed to keep all of its tigers alive nearly twice as long as wild tigers, meaning families and visitors can enjoy this strange attraction as much as the attraction itself.
