Des Moines bar receives threatening letter

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) - Federal postal investigators are looking into a threat against a Des Moines bar.  

The Blazing Saddle, a gay bar, received a letter that was initially thought to be hate mail. When an employee opened the letter, white powder spilled out of the envelope.

Part of the letter read, "This is your punishment for sinning against God, and hopefully you'll die from the anthrax on this letter."

Authorities determined the substance was talcum powder.

Capital City Pride released a statement saying its Pride Fest 2015 events in June will not be disrupted by the threat.
