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.
