School officials announced last night that Gen. Robert P. Carson, also called General or G2, died Friday night at the home of his caretaker, veterinarian Dr. John Bradford, G2, along with Boo X, was one of school’s two beloved mascots and represented The Citadel for six years. The bulldog actually passed away on Friday night. However, Dr. Bradford waited until after the excitement from the weekend’s upset win over Georgia Tech started to settle before revealing the death.
General was 8 years old.
The mascots were featured as part of a photo shoot for Charleston Magazine back in 2014.
