Irish policeman receives pig’s head by registered mail
Investigation underway in West Clare
A police officer in West Clare is in shock after he received a pig’s head in the mail at his family home.
The head was delivered by registered post to the unnamed officer’s home in recent days.
Police have launched an investigation with police colleagues and friends of the "well respected" officer said to be outraged by the incident.
The Irish Independent newspaper reports that the officer is "highly regarded by his colleagues and those in the community where he works."

The package failed to alert post office workers en route to its destination and police are now trying to ascertain who sent it.
One officer told the Irish Independent: “It was a very personal attack. To have something like this sent to a person’s home address is a despicable act.
“It was a full pig’s head that was sent to him in a package. It was sent to his home and an incident like this would cause anyone distress, not least to a person who is just trying to do their job and make a living.”
The report also states that the officer is involved in community work in the area and is well liked in the region.
The source added: “He is extremely approachable to all living there and is very good at his job. He did not deserve this whatsoever.”
