Authorities are investigating whether the body of a decapitated goat found at a golf course has anything to do with the goat head delivered last week to Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs.

Cook County Forest Preserve Police contacted Chicago Police about the strange find Monday.

The headless white goat was found at the base of a tree at Indian Boundary Golf Course. The body of a plucked, disfigured chicken was found nearby.

Indian Boundary Assistant Manager Dan Stein says a golfer reported finding the goat's body. The golfer said he thought he'd found the goat from Wrigley.

A goat's severed head was found outside Wrigley Field last week, leading to speculation it was meant as a reference to the alleged "goat curse" placed on the Cubs in 1945.
