The University of Arkansas announced on Twitter that former Razorback mascot Tusk IV died yesterday.

Tusk IV was a Russian boar and was the Razorback's mascot beginning with the 2011 Arkansas football season and ending after the last game of the 2019 football season. The football teams record while Tusk IV was the mascot was 46-54.

Tusk IV retired after the 2019 football season and was replaced by his son Tusk V.

The live mascot tradition started at the University of Arkansas in 1997.

Tusk lived on the Stokes Family Farm near Dardanelle.
