It was a sad day when Razorback mascot Tusk II passed away of natural causes at his home in Dardanelle, Arkansas back in January.
But as they say in sports, and show-business, and in other types of businesses, “The show must go on.”
Tusk II’s brother Tusk III will take over in the fall, but one of these days, the little piglet who visited the Unviersity of Arkansas campus today will be the king of Hogmerica.
According to ArkansasRazorbacks.com, Baby Tusk (who is expected to become Tusk IV someday) was in town on a tour of the University of Arkansas facilities, hanging out at Barnhill Arena, the Razorback Foundation, and the Broyles Center today, showing off his ability to walk on a leash, and sit on command for apples.
It will be a while before Baby Tusk takes over as Razorback mascot, and maybe it takes a Razorback fan to think so, but he’s pretty freakin’ adorable.
See for yourself.
