In 2017, a Florida woman sent her estranged husband a box of live cockroaches and a dead rat. She was charged with mailing harmful material and aggravated stalking.
In 2015, a man in Massachusetts was arrested for sending his ex-girlfriend a package containing a dead cat. The cat had been skinned and decapitated, and the man also included a threatening note.

In 2013, a man in Oklahoma was arrested for mailing a live rattlesnake to his ex-wife.
