NCSU genetics experiment could spell the end for UNC's mascot

When the Tar Heels rush onto the football field for the season opener at Kenan Stadium, Rameses, the beloved mascot, will lead the way. Although the face-off is against the Citadel Bulldogs, it is the Heels' archrival, N.C. State, that poses the bigger threat to a tried and blue Carolina tradition. About 60 years ago, Wolfpack livestock scientists engineered a dastardly plot that just might do away with rams like Rameses for good. (Raleigh News & Observer)
