Louisiana Tech Working to Welcome New Bulldog

It's been nearly six months since Louisiana Tech University's mascot Tech XX died, and university officials say Tech XXI should be named by this spring if everything goes according to plan.

Jim King, Tech's vice president of student affairs, tells The Times a major part of the delay is Tech's need to obtain a federal permit before owning another bulldog.

King says his office is working with the school's student government association, which owns the animal, to meet requirements of the federal Animal Welfare Act.

He's been with the university 50 years as a student and educator, and served 26 years as president — the longest anyone has held the job.
