SAU's famed mule, Molly B, dies at 26

Posted: Updated:

MAGNOLIA (AP) - Molly B, the mule known for carrying Southern Arkansas University's mascot across the end zone after a Mulerider touchdown, has died.

The university says Molly B died Tuesday at the age of 26. Molly B was a fixture at SAU events for more than 20 years.

She was given to the university in 1993 by James Tollett, who then served as the chairman of the school's agriculture department.

SAU says all future mules who work with the school's mascot will bear the name Molly.

The next SAU mule is named is Molly Ann and will take over duties next fall.

SAU says a memorial service for Molly B will be held Thursday, March 14, followed by a reception hosted by the SAU Alumni Association.
