A state assemblyman says he found a dead goat outside his suburban New York home and believes it represents a death threat against him.
State Police Sgt. Ted Daley says the incident is under investigation. He would not comment on any threat.
Ball says he found the goat Wednesday night outside his Putnam Lake home. He says a sign around the animal's neck said ``Viva MS-13,'' designating a gang made up largely of Central American immigrants. Ball is a vocal opponent of illegal immigration but says he doubts MS-13 is the source.
Ball has expressed interest in running for Congress.
