CHICAGO — Chicago police are investigating after a severed goat's head in a box addressed to Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts was left outside Wrigley Field.

Ricketts is currently in negotiations with city officials and neighborhood business people about a $300 million renovation of Wrigley Field.

Cubs spokesman Julian Green says staff at Wrigley Field discovered the package Wednesday and immediately called police.

Police Department spokesman Mike Sullivan says officers responded to a call around 2:30 p.m. indicating an "intimidating package" had been received.
