(not the goat in question)
The Chicago Tribune’s Ameet Sachdev and Liam Ford report an unidentified person dropped off a goat’s head at Wrigley Field yesterday afternoon, with the package addressed to club owner Tom Ricketts. I’m almost 99% certain neither Ben Schwartz nor Ryne Sandberg were involved.
A man drove up to the ballpark around 2 p.m. Wednesday and handed a package to a security guard at Gate K, according to police and Cubs spokesman Julian Green.
The man asked the guard to deliver the package to Ricketts, then got back into his truck and drove away, police said. Security officials found the goat’s head inside. The head was all black and had a U.S. Department of Agriculture tag on its ear, police said.
The package did not contain a note and was never delivered to Ricketts, police said. The head was taken to the city’s Animal Control department, police said.
Police are investigating the “intimidating package,” Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala said.
