In one of the more bizarre incidents so far this baseball season, a goat's head was sent to Wrigley Field Wednesday afternoon addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, a team spokesperson told the Chicago Tribune. 

The mysterious package was dropped off at Gate K at Wrigley and no note was included. Chicago police were called to the scene immediately and are investigating the situation. Currently, Police News Affairs hasn't released any new information regarding the incident. 

This isn't the first time a goat's head has made headlines on the corner of Addison and Sheffield. During last season's home opener against the Rockies, a severed goat's head was found hanging outside Wrigley Field. Officers treated the matter as a prank.

The "Curse of the Billy Goat" stems back from 1945 when Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis' pet goat was denied entrance into Wrigley Field during the World Series. Afterwards Sianis proclaimed, "the Cubs, they ain't gonna win no more." The Cubs haven't won the National League crown since '45 and their drought is going on 105 years.
