A man was charged with harassment after authorities say he sent the head of a plush toy horse to a state senator, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

State police said a man hand-delivered a package to the West Deptford, N.J., office of state Sen. Stephen Sweeney. The man told staffers the package was for Sweeney, but also mentioned it could be given to Gov.-elect Chris Christie.

There was neither a name nor a written message, but contained in the package was the stuffed head of a toy horse.

Staff members called the bomb squad, who destroyed the package.

"We take every interaction with our government officials seriously, at least of this nature," said Sgt. Steve Jones, a state police spokesman. "This was not just some benign communication. This was obviously alarming to the staff that received the package."

Police arrested an unidentified 61-year-man in connection with the incident. He was charged with fourth-degree harassment.

Should you find yourself in the market for an enormous stuffed a horse head, which I don't recommend sending to any government officials or the like, you can get one here. Don't ask how I know these things.


Eight ponies treated themselves to a tour of Paris Jan. 23, leParisien.fr reported. (Get a translation here.) 

The ponies, apparently spooked by a car horn, dumped their riders and galloped along the A4 motorway. Three of the ponies were intercepted, while the other five ended up in the forest. There were found and returned unharmed that afternoon.

Snaps to Christa for the weird news sighting!
