Victor E. Bulldog III Statue

Victor E. Bulldog III Statue

The 100-year legacy of live mascots at Fresno State was memorialized with the unveiling of a bronze statue of recently retired live mascot Victor E. Bulldog III on Oct. 25, 2023. It is located on the north patio of the Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Union at Fresno State. Victor E. Bulldog III, who also attended the event, served as the live mascot from 2015 to 2023. In a sitting pose, he stands 18 inches high. Local sculptor Jean Carter created the bronze statue at 150% size, or 27” high. It was cast by foundryman Lester Harries, a proud Fresno State alumnus who graduated with an art degree. The bronze Victor E. Bulldog III statue was funded by private donations.
