UNC’s former live mascot Rameses XXI dies
Posted Feb 9, 2021
Rameses XXI died Monday afternoon. The ram was UNC’s mascot for nearly a decade and had gone to his first football game when he was less than a year old. He’d been treated for arthritis in his shoulder and hips, according to Ann Hogan Leonard, who lives on Hogan’s Magnolia View Farm. Rameses, Hogan said, was gentle and friendly from the start.
