A Westmoreland County man who mailed a bloody cow’s head to his wife’s lover has been admitted to probation and community service.
Jason Michael Fife “understands that in a civilized society a person cannot send a severed cow’s head to anybody,” said his defense lawyer, Henry Hilles.
The victim received a package containing a cow’s head with a puncture wound in its skull on June 1, 2006.Police said Mr. Fife obtained the cow’s head from a butcher’s shop, claiming he wanted the dried skull for decoration. Instead, he mailed the head frozen, so as not to alert parcel carriers to the contents, police said. The box became bloody after sitting on the victim’s doorstep on a warm day.
Mr. Fife and his wife, who have a young child, later reconciled, Mr. Hilles said.
1. It’s a sad day when it is decided that sending a cow’s bloody head via the UPS man is “uncivilized.”
2. If I’m working in a butcher shop and a man walks into my butcher shop and requests the head of a cow “for decoration” I’d pull out the gun that I keep in my special hiding place (probably a leg halter) and I’d shoot him in the nuts. No questions asked. Just to be safe. Now THAT’S uncivilized.
3. Do you think there is a particular UPS man out there in Westmoreland County putting two and two together and getting all, “Ewwwwwwwwwwwww!” If he wasn’t OCD about hand-washing before, I sure bet he is now.
4. They reconciled.
You cheated on me, but I still love you.
You sent my lover a cow’s severed head. I love you more than ever. Let’s get this trailer a-rockin’!
