Nevada Rancher in Stand Off with Feds, Threatens “Range War”
A Nevada rancher’s threat to wage a “range war” with the Bureau of Land Management precipitated a standoff today between supporters of the embattled rancher, Cliven Bundy, and federal law enforcement officials.
Bundy posted a statement on the Bundy Ranch website on Sunday night saying: “They have my cattle and now they have one of my boys. Range War begins tomorrow.”
By noon today Nevada time, about 300 supporters had assembled, a Bundy spokesman, Dwayne Magoon, told ABC News.
