“Mike the Tiger is not my favorite part of campus.”
Heisman winner Joe Burrow says he’s not a big fan of LSU having a live mascot … saying he’s against keeping wild animals in captivity.
The #1 overall pick made the revelation while discussing the super-popular Netflix doc, “Tiger King,” on Barstool Sports‘ “Pardon My Take” on Friday … saying he probably won’t tune in to the series due to the subject matter.
“Actually, I haven’t watched it yet,” Burrow says. “I’m anti animal in cage. So, I’m not gonna watch it, I don’t think.”
That’s when co-host Big Cat brought up Mike VII — LSU’s beloved mascot that lives on campus — and Burrow said he was against the idea.
FWIW — Mike has a huge habitat on campus for students to check out the kitty in between classes … and there’s a vet on-site to make sure all is well.
There’s even a live cam for people across the world to check in on Mike … although the thing seems to be chilling most of the time.
