One Iowa woman may have sent three pounds of cattle manure to a neighbor as a prank, but now she is facing a hefty fine and possible jail time.
According to TIME magazine, Kimberly Capdevila sent the smelly care package to her neighbor in response to complaints they made about her barking dog. She made the delivery arrangements through the website PoopSenders.com, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like.
Capdevila is now facing a fine of $625 and up to 30 days in jail. Despite looking forward to her day in court, Capdevila reiterates no harm was intended in the joke.
“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.”
This isn’t the first time feces were mailed during the 2014 holiday season. On Black Friday, 30,000 people purchased “poop in a box,” a gag gift offered from Cards Against Humanity. A chunk of dried cow pie was inside each box.
