BLM Ends Roundup of Bundy Cattle

The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years.

The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte.

The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy's son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents.

Another woman said she was thrown to the ground by an officer.

With more Bundy supporters pouring in from around the country, safety concerns began to grow.

The I-Team has learned the deal to end the gather was brokered by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie.

According to sources, the BLM wants to proceed with the sale of the cattle already gathered during the roundup but is reportedly willing to share the revenue from the sale with Bundy.

Sheriff Gillespie has been negotiating with Bundy behind the scenes for months reached a tentative agreement Friday night, though Bundy insisted the sheriff come to his ranch to finalize the arrangement face-to-face.

The two men meet Saturday to discuss the agreement prior to a public announcement.

In its statement, the BLM said its actions this past week were progress in enforcing two court orders to remove the trespassing cattle from public land.

The agency director also asked that everyone involved in the dispute remain peaceful and law-abiding.


They fear the people when they mobilize. Lessons to be learned.


  1. Actually they fear the wrath of Dirty Harry Reid who with his son Rory are in cahoots with a Chinese energy company to build a HUGE solar project in that region.....funded by the US taxpayer......and Bundy's ranch and cattle were an inconvenience that needed to be dealt with.
    When the story broke all of a sudden the BLM saw the light and "decided to reconsider".

    This ain't over. They will lay low, regroup, wait for some other distraction to come along to
    preoccupy America and it's case of "short attention span syndrome" and then they will be back.
    In the middle of the night, with a raid team...and they will black bag Bundy and his family so they can't raise the alarm. Then they will do as they intended to do all along.

    Big gov simply CANNOT ALLOW CITIZENS TO PREVAIL. To do so is the makings of a revolt
    and there is simply no way those in power will EVER allow the citizenry to feel they have a chance to EVER win at ANYTHING. Total oppression is the basis for power so THEY WILL BE BACK.

    1. You're assessment is spot on. They'll be back.
