BRISTOW, Okla. - An Oklahoma House representative who authored a bill enabling the slaughtering of horses in the state has been receiving death threats, according to investigators.
The Oklahoma State Department of Investigation confirmed its agents have been looking into allegations of threats against Rep. Skye McNiel, R-Bristow.
McNiel's bill, House Bill 1999, passed a significant hurdle Tuesday with its approval in the state Senate. The legislation now moves to the desk of Okla. Gov. Mary Fallin, who is "inclined" to sign it, according to the Associated Press.
