An Iowa woman cited this week for mailing her neighbors three pounds of cow poop told The Hawk Eye, “I look forward to my day in court.”
Kimberly Capdevila, 51, says the smell care package, sent in response to previous complaints about her barking dog, was a “practical joke.” But police gave Capdevila a misdemeanor ticket for third-degree harassment that could land her up to 30 days in jail and a fine of $625.
“In no way, shape or form did I intend this to be anything more than a practical joke,” she said. “I was given a website that I thought was anonymous. I thought it would be a funny thing to do to send it to my neighbors. After all the problems we’ve had, I thought it would be a funny thing to do. I am sorry if they took offense to it. If they took offense, I apologize.”
According to police reports, Capdevila sent the cow dung through poopsenders.com, which is exactly what it sounds like. Although the site boasts “Guaranteed Anonymous” in bright red letters on its website and promotes a testimonial from someone who sent their neighbors poop as retribution for not cleaning up after her dog, it does state that customers “may not use our service to threaten, constitute harassment, violate a legal restraint, or any other unlawful purpose.”
Poopsenders also offers elephant and gorilla feces. (Don’t get any ideas.)
