(CBS)– Something of a ghoulish surprise arrived at the friendly confines today and people are wondering if it was a prank or something else.
At 2:30 p.m. at Gate K, police say a package containing a goat’s head was dropped off. It was addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts.
Police were notified and called it a report of an “intimidating package.”
It came on a day when the Cubs faced a disappointment. Their 7 p.m. game with the Brewers was put off because of cold and rain in the forecast.
Did all of this have something to do with the legendary day back in 1945 when restaurateur Billy Sianis brought a goat to Wrigley and got tossed out?
That led to Sianis barking out a curse that the Cubs would never win a World Series at Wrigley.
The goat’s head was delivered by an unidentified man driving an unmarked truck. There is surveillance video of the incident as it happened.
