Residents of a house in the 900 block of 18th Street found a severed buffalo head in their front yard early Sunday morning -- but it wasn't Ralphie's, according to Boulder police.
Upon retrieving the disembodied bison head, police said they checked with the University of Colorado, and concluded it didn't belong to CU's renowned mascot, Ralphie V.
"That was a concern," Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel said. "We checked with CUPD and we checked with Ralphie's handlers. She is fine."
