An Iowa woman is facing a harassment charge after allegedly mailing a box of cow poop to her neighbors as result of their repeated complaints about her dog’s barking. UPI cover the story:
Burlington police said Kimberly Capdevila, 51, sent the smelly package to neighbors Steve Rowland and Mary Eipert through website poopsenders.com after the neighbors repeatedly complained to police about Capdevila’s dog barking during the past three years.
“On Dec. 13, Rowland received a package in the mail from poopsenders.com,” Des Moines County District Associate Court documents state. “Inside the package was a substance that was identified as animal feces. On Dec. 29, (officers) spoke with Kimberly Capdevila, who stated she had the package sent to the Rowlands because of the ongoing problems between the two families.”
Police said poopsenders.com, which offers deliveries of cow, elephant and gorilla poop through the United States Postal Service, did not break the law by filling Capdevila’s order. The website says customers “may not use our service to threaten, constitute harassment, violate a legal restraint, or any other unlawful purpose. The customer agrees this is a gag gift, novelty service for entertainment only, and that is their only intention.”
Capdevila was cited for third-degree harassment and is due in court Jan. 6.
