Family to preserve head of deceased Rameses, “Bam Bam” will be new mascot

The 18th Rameses, a staple to UNC football games, passed away on Thursday night, and the owners are already talking to a taxidermist about stuffing him. Chris Hogan, a member of the family that has raised Rameses since the 1920s, said that the 18th Rameses died of natural causes. The family decapitated the animal, buried the body, and plans to preserve the head. (Reese News)
