blmAccording to a live stream by the local sheriff at the protest area at the Bundy Ranch, the Bureau of Land Management has agreed to cease their operations near the Bundy Ranch.

We are unsure if the Bundys will be getting the cattle back that are currently being held by the BLM.

The situation is still fluid, and we aren’t sure exactly what this means long term.

According yo MyNews3, the BLM issued the following statement,

“As we have said from the beginning of the gather to remove illegal cattle from federal land consistent with court orders, a safe and peaceful operation is our number one priority. After one week, we have made progress in enforcing two recent court orders to remove the trespass cattle from public lands that belong to all Americans.

“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.

“We ask that all parties in the area remain peaceful and law-abiding as the Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service work to end the operation in an orderly manner.

Ranching has always been an important part of our nation’s heritage and continues throughout the West on public lands that belong to all Americans. This is a matter of fairness and equity, and we remain disappointed that Cliven Bundy continues to not comply with the same laws that 16,000 public lands ranchers do every year. After 20 years and multiple court orders to remove the trespass cattle, Mr. Bundy owes the American taxpayers in excess of $1 million. The BLM will continue to work to resolve the matter administratively and judicially.”

The live stream shows numerous armed protestors, including what seem to be militia members armed with AR15’s with tac vests loaded with magazines.
