History graduate student Tim Landry, 57, passes Mike the Tiger and his habitat every day, reports LSU student newspaper The Reveille.
His daily admiration of the mascot has led him to question what happens to Mike after he passes away. The answer: It varies. Past mascots have been mounted, buried, cremated or their whereabouts are unknown.
Landry, a student government senator, would like to change that. He has authored a bill urging that deceased tiger mascots be entombed at a publicly accessible spot on campus.
