Mike the Tiger celebrating 9th birthday

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Happy Ninth Birthday to Mike the Tiger.

Tigers don't really like birthday cake so his party was a quiet one. But Mike had a ball and cool water on a hot day so he seemed happy. Children were excited when they heard the tiger was celebrating a birthday.

In honor of Mike's birthday, LSU released some fun facts. After Mike rides around the stadium in his trailer at home games, they park Mike's trailer outside the opponents' locker room.
