A memorial to honor the late LSU mascot, Mike the Tiger, continues to grow outside his habitat on the school's campus. 

Several cards and a wreath hang on the exterior of the habitat, located just north of Tiger Stadium.

Mike VI passed away Tuesday at the age of 11, after being euthanized by LSU's Attending Veterinarian David Baker, DVM, Ph.D.

Mike VI was diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma in May 2016 and received stereotactic radiotherapy on June 1, 2016. 

He entered hospice care on Oct. 10. His caretakers wanted to observe him to ensure that he did not suffer.
