  • Nowhere else in the country can you get the opportunity to see a live tiger pretty much 24-hours a day. Also, for you naysayers, go visit--this tiger lives better than most of America in his fancy huge habitat. It's fun to watch Mike play--he's clearly just an oversized kitty.
  • Born in LA, went to school at LSU, go back every fall for football. I still find it sad that such a powerful, awe-inspiring animal is locked in a cage. Idiots think that because the cage is nice, that somehow makes it not a cage. One of the reviewers here typifies the stupidity of holding a live predatory animal in a small enclosure: "The tiger lives better than most of America in his huge, fancy habitat." Only dumbasses don't understand that a 500-pound wild beast doesn't belong in a habitat. Mike VI came from Big Cats of Indiana, which had its licensed revoked in 2014 for, among many other things, improper capture and caging of big cats. Undercover investigations revealed that Mike VI, who came to LSU at 2 years old, was actually captured in the wild illegally. In other words, Mike VI was born in the wild and removed from the wild and caged even though he was in no danger in the wild and would have lived a healthy life outside of captivity. The story made news in Indiana but did not reach Louisiana for several reasons. Let's not forget that Bengal tigers are endangered, and even though Mike would likely have reproduced in the wild, he instead was caged for our human entertainment WITHOUT being placed on a captive breeding program to help further the species.
  • A nice habitat, but I always imagine the tiger must feel lonesome.
  • I hope that they always have a Tiger! :) Mike was out, lounging in the little river that they have for him. The Habitat is clean, and well kept. A good place for Any Tiger - but especially for Mike.
  • Got to see Mike the Tiger. What a handsome guy! Praying for his continued recovery.
