CHICAGO — Goats that previously appeared at Chicago’s Wrigley Field were alive and kicking.
But not Wednesday, when a goat’s head was left in a box outside the home of the Cubs addressed to team chairman Tom Ricketts.
Ricketts is in negotiations with city officials and neighborhood business people about Wrigley Field’s $300 million renovation.
Cubs spokesman Julian Green says staff at Wrigley Field discovered the package and immediately called police.
Chicago police spokesman Officer Veejay Zala says Chicago police responded to a call around 2:30 p.m. indicating an “intimidating package” had been received. Zala would not elaborate, saying police are investigating.
Chicago legend says a restaurant owner allegedly cursed the Cubs when they wouldn’t let his pet goat into Wrigley Field.
