1987-1991 Live Malamute Mascot
The Associated Students of Western Oregon State College (ASWOSC) purchased a malamute wolf mix, named Wolf, to become a live mascot in 1987. He attended sporting events, rallies, and was seen around campus during his daily walks. In 1991 he was retired due to health issues. ASWOSC made the decision not to have another live mascot due to the costs required to maintain the housing, feeding, and health care of a live animal.
