Meet LSU's new possible mascot, Harvey

Meet LSU's new possible mascot, Harvey

While not officially labeled Mike VII just yet, a new tiger cub has found its way to LSU.

Harvey's habitat and LSU's animal care plan are licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Until his quarantine ends, the tiger won't be in public view or available for the media to photograph.

LSU's move-in day was on Wednesday, and the returning Tiger students got quite a surprise when the school's potential new mascot made an appearance on campus. The school didn't release the name of the tiger in it's initial release, but the timeline of when they wanted to bring the tiger to campus coincides with Harvey's arrival. If this quarantine passes without incident, Harvey will be formally introduced as Mike VII. If that occurs, LSU will notify the media and the public in advance. Dr. David Baker, LSU's attending veterinarian, the primary caregiver of previous Mikes, will also not available for interviews until the quarantine is completed.

"Wild at Heart Wildlife Center" is the sanctuary in Florida that donated Harvey, as well as Mikes IV, V, and VI. He is being housed in the night house of the tiger habitat, and must remain there for at least one week. The University has not purchased a tiger since Mike III in 1958. You can follow Mike on facebook (, Twitter (@mikethetiger) and Instagram (@mikethetiger_lsu). He is under quarantine and will be observed by school veterinarians for a week. We teach. We heal.
