SEATTLE -- The Washington Huskies knew they were taking to the practice field Tuesday to prepare for their matchup with the third-ranked LSU Tigers this weekend.

They didn't expect to see a live tiger awaiting them.

Sheena, a 16-month-old Bengal tiger, was sitting in a cage right at the entrance to the Washington practice field as the players made their way in. Players had not been informed beforehand about their furry guest.

Washington contacted A Walk on the Wild Side, a private animal reserve in Canby, Ore., last week about the possibility of bringing the tiger in.

The idea was to help the Huskies prepare for LSU's live mascot.
