The Duke mascot head was apparently stolen and placed above the UNC campus store.
The head was quickly taken down, but not before pictures began circulating on social media sites. A photo was taken by Mark Snyder earlier Wednesday that shows the Duke mascot head on a stick.
Derek Rowles, an executive producer for ABC 11 in Raleigh, said Chapel Hill Police have taken possession of the Duke mascot head. It was removed from the bookstore around 3:40 p.m. Wednesday.
The mascot head will be returned to Duke.
