Severed Head Thrown From Stands During German Cup Game

Soccer, or should I say football, fans are known to go to great lengths to show team spirit, but sometimes an over eccentric fan will come up with an idea that probably takes things a bit too far, which was the case during a German Cup match between Dresden and Leipzig.

During Saturday’s game, which resulted in Dresden taking the win after a 2-2 draw, a severed bulls head was found thrown onto the sidelines, presumably by a diehard Dresden fan. Why a bull’s head? The Leipzig team is owned by Red Bull.

This somewhat disturbing act is not the first of its kind, as Barcelona fans once used a pig’s head in a similar fashion after Luis Figo transferred to Real Madrid.

Taking into account the high level of security one has to pass through to even get into the stadium, the logistics of how this fan was able to get a severed head past the checks is the more pressing question.
