The mascot for the Yale athletic department has died. The nine-year-old English bulldog was serving as their mascot since he was born.
His name was Handsome Dan XVII. He died while with his family on Thurs. in Quonochontaug, R.I., and likely died of a heart attack.
When he wasn’t the mascot, he would be known as Sherman. He was working for the university since 2007.
Besides being the mascot, he’s also met former Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, according to ESPN. Yale hasn’t announced any plans on their next mascot.
One may not be in place by the time that their new athletic season starts.
