Ralphie IV, CU Buffs' retired mascot, has died

Ralphie IV, the retired buffalo mascot of the University of Colorado, has died. University officials say she was separated from her mother and was found in the jaws of a coyote.

With no treatment options, she was humanely euthanized.

20 years is considered to be a long life for a buffalo, and the number of people who have spoken out and verbalized their grief speaks to the love and support Ralphie IV felt throughout her life.

Ralphie was buried at an undisclosed location in Hendersonville, CO where she's resided since her retirement.

The University of Colorado in Boulder is mourning the loss of one of its former mascots. After returning to health, Ralphie IV wouldn't bond with the herd, so she was donated to the university. Her longtime veterinarian was called and after several tests, it was determined she was suffering from liver failure and was in rapid decline. She was named Rowdy by ranch hands. She made her first run against Colorado State in the 1998 season opener, making her last run in 2008, at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, also against CSU (seen in the video). Her last run was on August 31, 2008, when she was replaced by Ralphie V.

During her tenure, she ran in 75 games - tied for the most among Ralphies with Ralphie I - including six bowl games and four conference championship games. "We lost a great buffalo, a great mascot and a great icon".
