Severed Goat Head Speaks to Lawyer
Nanny goat   ((c) *jude*)

A prominent defense attorney found a pink shopping bag outside her Milwaukee office this week, and the contents definitely weren't the result of a trip to the mall. The bag held a goat head left by someone apparently unfamiliar with the finer points of Godfather-style threats made with animals: The poor creature had a note stuffed into its mouth.

Robin Shellow's name was written backward on the note six times, leading her to speculate about a link to the full moon, the Journal Sentinel reports. She doesn't know who sent the head but figures "someone was trying to get my attention on a lovely summer day and was unable to locate his or her copy of the yellow pages." (More Robin Shellow stories.)
