Rameses was raised as a pet

Rameses, UNC's 18th ram mascot, died Thursday night of natural causes. He was 8 years old. Pablo, as he was named until he was 3 1/2, was a triplet. He was chosen as the heir to UNC's mascot throne because, "he had the potential for the best horns," said Ann Leonard, one of the ram's caretakers. Rams naturally are aggressive animals. But Leonard's late husband Rob Hogan raised Pablo as a pet. (Raleigh News & Observer)
