BLM Halts Actions at Nevada Ranch
Editor’s Note: The BLM has apparently backed down in the face of the armed protest. They say they are going to release the seized cattle.
In the midst of widespread vitriol and antigovernment rage, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced on Saturday that it was ending its operation to remove cattle from federal land that belongs to a Nevada rancher.
From national news outlets such as Fox News to the far reaches of the antigovernment internet, in the last week rancher Cliven Bundy and his issues with the BLM have ignited widespread passion. But in response to the BLM doing exactly what many had demanded, Bundy, who has been at odds with the federal government over fees to have his cattle graze on federal lands, said the fight had just begun.
