UNC’s 18th Rameses mascot dies
Fri Feb 10, 2012
Rameses, whose unmistakable Carolina blue horns are a staple at UNC football games, died Thursday evening of natural causes. The 18th Rameses will be buried at Hogan’s Magnolia View Farm. Every ram has been cared for by the Hogans since it became the University’s official mascot in the 1920s. The ram was 8 years old, a typical lifespan of the horned dorset breed, said Ann Leonard, one of Rameses’ caretakers.
