Mike the Tiger is dying; this is an acknowledged fact.

Of what useful purpose is the medical treatments other than to extend his life for our selfish reasons? He should be allowed to end his days in the comfort of his enclosure, not being carted around town drugged.

Please, LSU and alumni, give him the dignity of passing in comfort, administering only what is needed to keep him comfortable. Start working now on finding his successor. I would suggest a full-blooded, female Bengal tiger named Mikala the First.
