(VIDEO) Federal Agents Tasering Protesters, Reports of Killing Cattle in Bunkerville, NV

21st Century Wire

A convoy of vehicles with armed federal agents onboard from the US Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) faced-off with the public at their protest camp near Exit 112, off of Riverside Road in Bunkerville, Nevada.

The scene which took place this afternoon at 2pm PST, went violent after a detachment of federal agents pulled over and began threatening protesters and residents, before assaulting at least one woman and panicking and tasering protesters (see video below).

Killing Cattle

A detachment of 12 federal vehicles and approximately 20 federal agents who were met by a band of residents and protesters parked along the shoulder of Riverside Road. Members of the public had asked the federal BLM to stop and answer questions regarding two vehicles in their convoy – a Backhoe digger and a dump truck, both of which are thought to be used by BLM forces to dispose of dead cattle.

It has been confirmed by ranchers and observers that the BLM and federal “contract cowboy” agents’ aggressive practices of rustling herds and then taking the stolen the livestock for sale at auction in Utah. Witnesses have seen federal agent using multiple helicopters (image, below) forcing cattle to removal zones, sometimes uphill in 90F heat – a practice known to cause tremendous stress and exhaustion to the animals and causing them to die unnecessarily. It is believed that BLM agents are then scooping up the dead animals with Backhoe diggers, burying them right there in the desert, or disposing of them off site.

In addition, one tragic result which has probably not been taken into account by BLM rustlers is the fact, reported by onlookers, that mothering cows who are being subject to these deadly federal tactics have been forced to leave their calves behind to hide in the desert bush (a common practice by mothers who are being rustled, who later backtrack to retrieve their young) putting them at risk of death as well.

This shocking video was shot only a few hours ago, where following an assault on one 57 year old mother was violently thrown to the pavement by federal agents, BLM agents panicked and began threatening, and then tasering male and female protesters, and setting dogs on them.

‘Last Man Standing’

The BLM made a decision last week to escalate its decades-long standoff against independent ranchers in Clark County Nevada, deploying a small army of around 200 federal agents, many of them armed, including snipers positioned along the ridges to ‘give cover’ to agents on the ground who are illegally rustling privately owned cattle – all in an effort to remove the remaining herd of 1000 cows belonging to rancher Cliven Bundy (photo, below).

Nicknamed “the last man standing”, Bundy is the only rancher left who has endured a federal campaign of threats, harassment and exemplary fines over the years.

Presently, he stands in defiance of a court order insisting that he remove his cattle from 600,000 acre public land – grazed by his and other families since the 1800’s, but land which has recently fallen into the BLM’s extensive property portfolio.

The BLM have forced ranchers off of the land in Clark County because of environmental lawsuits filed by campaigners who claim that cows are threatening an endangered species of desert tortoise, despite the fact that there is no conclusive evidence that grazing livestock are driving the turtle to extinction.

    right, to save the tortoises from being trampled by his cattle. That is the lamest story I have ever heard. I think the bulldozers and concrete had a slightly bigger impact on their environment. duh.

    • momazilla

      The cattle and the turtle have co-existed for over 100 years without problems. The only difference now is the damn tree-huggers running our government. They have declared WAR on the people. Confiscation without compensation is called THEFT and should be dealt with accordingly.

      • smoc1

        You will find in the near future it isn’t about what is on top of the land but what is under it. The tortoise tactic is fake. The BLM is euthanizing many of them already. I can’t post links on this thread but the info is readily available online. Look up BLM leasing public lands for fracking.

    how long can the government survive without tax money. Lets find out.

    • Robert Graf

      They’ve got their own private printing press. The money is theirs. Your federal income tax does not pay the government bills. The IRS and the Federal Reserve both belong to the bank for international settlements. There is a difference between ownership and control.

      • Robert Stevens

        NO the IRS is now obamas personal guard dog,campaign manager,political tool.Things in this country are at the tipping point.If we don’t stand up SOON, ALL is lost.
        We ALL know how this was going to turn out,and the feds are acting exactly like we knew they would.

        • Arcanek

          No. the IRS is not obamas, obama belongs to the banksters, just like the IRS does. They have fooled you into thinking that obama acts on his own, and is part of the problem. He is just a sock puppet, to distract those who do not see the hand, just the sock puppet.

  • Raymond Martucci

    maybe this should happen to the police and the government people force them up a big hill with no water and just see how they would be. makes me wonder if the government and the law are the real crooks in this country, and they say there are laws. no one should be above the law not even these clowns

  • lokiswife

    Why aren’t these government people down on the border protecting the US from the parade of illegal immigrants boldly marching across the border? Or is this just a training session for what will be happening in other places across the country when people refuse to buckle under stifling government regulations?

    It’s clear we have lost control of our government. Neither voting nor redressing our grievances works period. We are being forced into either Tyranny or Revolution.

      It really is coming down to a choice between living on our knees or dying on our feet. Bunkerville may become the next Bunker Hill, as armed militia are en route to stand up with Cliven Bundy against these federal terrorists.

  • Kathy Nelson

    Governor Brian Sandoval, If you truly feel this is offensive to you knowing this goes against Nevadan’s first amendment rights, then you need to call up your National Guard to protect your citizen’s fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution. From what I understand there are Militia groups from Nevada who are joining the protesters. Sir, as Governor you to need obey the Constitution , and also comply with your state law,before something really terrible happens! Kathy Nelson

    Did you know:

    “The U.S. Bureau of Land Management announced it will kill hundreds of threatened desert tortoises it’s been caring for at a Nevada conservation facility. The slaughter is being blamed on a lack of funds by the agency.
    Real estate developers in southern Nevada who wanted to disrupt the habitat of threatened desert tortoises to build their little enclaves of air conditioning and irrigation in the arid suburbs of Las Vegas have been able to do so — for a fee. And while at the height of the real estate boom those fees went a long way toward providing refuge for displaced tortoises, the real estate bust has seen the program implode.”

    Welcome to ObamaNation! Is the Obama Regime enticing a Civil War? Barack Hussein Obama is an evil man. He is a polarizing and divisive figure pitting one group of Americans against another. He supports late term partial birth abortions and infanticide. Let’s not forget Obama’s mentor, Bill Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist who as leader of the Weather Underground in the Sixties advocated the killing of 25 million Americans after the overthrow of the country, if they could not be reeducated into their Socialist utopia. Obama hangs around with radicals because he is a radical.

That land is earmarked for something unsavory to existance. I hope Bundy wins but as BLM already own the land its looking pretty much 1 sided in BLMs favour. Unless, of course, many more people show up and get the point across in volumes! All the best Mr.Bundy

    Looks like the federal agents need to be trained on the use of Police tasers. 100 feet is the distance for a taser to be used. If the suspect is in heavy winter coats then the 15 feet or less the federal agents in the photo can use the taser. I did not see any one in heavy coats. At the range the cops would be using the police taser at in the photo is lethal force. Get that cops, at that range it is lethal deadly force to use an taser. I did not see any protester armed. The protesters where very mild and peaceful. But if the cops had snipers in the hills to protect the highway cops. Who was protecting the snipers. They would be the first to be taken out if the protesters really where that bad of people. I saw peaceful protesters and killer cops.

    I do NOT support Bundy. Bundy has been profiting from 600,000 acres of public land. And he owes either $300,000 in fees he’s refused to pay, or according to the so-called government source, it’s over $1 million.

    In either case – he’s been profiting from all this for decades and apparently unwilling to pay for it.

    Can you do that? Can I? No. But Bundy did and has – for decades. Can I run MY cows acrossed that land? No.

    The BLM ordered his cows OFF public land – he refused, and brought ALL this trouble on his stupid self. All these cow roundups are his damned fault. He’s a fucking idiot.

    Most of you idiots haven’t thought this through. No one man (or any men) have the “right” to drive even a single species to extinction. This isn’t an issue about Bundy “using” public land – this is an issue about not allowing one man to drive a species to extinction.

    Public land does need to be managed from over-abuse. I’ve seen the desert lands around Clark County – they’re definitely overgrazed.

    • Seanoamericano

      Grown ups are talking here so you should probably go back to little peoples table. Obviously you are one of the environazis who is mad because somebody does not think as you do so they are evil and must be stopped. I dont see you people protesting ted turner who has closed off many times that much land including a National Forest, you cant use it. Oh thats right he is a socialist lefty.

      • Spychiatrist

      Oh please save the tortoises imbecile. If you believe that excuse from blm then you haven’t the capacity to see the bigger picture, namely dingy harry reid profiting from this land.

    • Mick

      If this Bundy really has not been paying his usage fee’s he owes the American people and he’s a chump for thinking that Federal or State land is for his use as he sees fit. I’ve leased public land and if I didn’t pay for my permits, I couldn’t use it. Sure made sense to me. Am I missing something? If not, my advice to Bundy is, cowboy up and pay your bill… just like the rest of us!

  • Kate47

    This is from Sharee Bundy, by request, for those who are wondering WHY…
    You may have to click on read or see more to read it all…


    Here it is:

    Bundy’s daughter Shiree Bundy Cox in a letter explains the feud from the family’s perspective:

    “I have had people ask me to explain my dad’s stance on this BLM fight. Here it is in as simple of terms as I can explain it. There is so much to it, but here it s in a nut shell.

    My great grandpa bought the rights to the Bunkerville allotment back in 1887 around there. Then he sold them to my grandpa who then turned them over to my dad in 1972. These men bought and paid for their rights to the range and also built waters, fences and roads to assure the survival of their cattle, all with their own money, not with tax dollars. The rights to the land use are called preemptive rights.

    Some where down the line, to keep the cows from over grazing, came the Bureau of Land Management. They were supposed to assist the ranchers in the management of their ranges while the ranchers paid a yearly allotment which was to be use to pay the BLM wages and to help with repairs and improvements of the ranches.

    My dad did pay his grazing fees for years to the BLM until they were no longer using his fees to help him and to improve. Instead they began using these monies against the ranchers. They bought all the rest of the ranchers in the area out with they’re own grazing fees.

    When they offered to buy my dad out for a penance he said no thanks and then fired them because they weren’t doing their job.

    He quit paying the BLM and tried giving his grazing fees to the county, which they turned down.

    So my dad just went on running his ranch and making his own improvements with his own equipment and his own money, not taxes. In essence the BLM was managing my dad out of business. Well when buying him out didn’t work, they used the endangered species card. You’ve already heard about the desert tortoise.

    Well that didn’t work either, so then began the threats and the court orders, which my dad has proven to be unlawful for all these years. Now they’re desperate. It’s come down to buying the brand inspector off and threatening the County Sheriff.

    Everything their doing at this point is illegal and totally against the Constitution of the United States of America.

    Then there’s the issue of the cattle that are at this moment being stolen. See even if dad hasn’t paid them, those cattle belong to him, regardless of where they are they are my father’s property.

    His herd has been part of that range for over a hundred years, long before the BLM even existed. Now the Feds think they can just come in and remove them and sell them without a legal brand inspection or without my dad’s signature on it. They think they can take them over two borders, which is illegal, ask any trucker. Then they plan to take them to the Richfield Auction and sell them. All this with our tax money.

    They have paid off the contract cowboys and the auction owner as well as the Nevada brand inspector with our tax dollars. See how slick they are? Well, this is it in a nut shell. Thanks

      That time is past and hasnt worked for years. first comes the soap box then the ballot box only leaving the cartridge box. Find out the names and addresses of all those involved and post it for all to see. Asymetrical warfare like the cop who was screwed over in LA. did. Everyone involved is a cockroach, shine a light on them. Find the sniper nests and their hides.

      To the jackboots
      Take note of Ukraine, as soon as the usefulness of the Right Sector thugs ran out they were thrown under the bus. Think they will not do that to you? You are dumber than originally thought of if not. Its time to chose where you stand.Right or with treasonous trash.

    This is total invasion, robbery, murder and destruction of property – a high crime that every Fed there needs to be shot for ! Where teh heck is the Sierff ? It’s his job to arrest or shoot any Fed that shows up in his county ! They need to fire their Sheriff and get one that will do his rightful DUTY ! It is the original DUTY of the Sheriff to keep out ALL Federalists ! The Sheriff is never to work with, under or for any Fed ! They betray their people and break their oath and are disqualified from their job if they do ! The Sheriff belongs to the people, not the state or DC ! They are answerable only to the people ! This is a hold up like the old days on stage coaches only now DC is doing it to homes and farms. It’s Treason against the 4th Amendment to the Constitution and that means public hanging for all of them including those that sent them. We peol need to fight back – this is WAR ! DC has declared war on the people many times and it’s time we fight back ! BE a TRUE AMERICAN FOR A CHANGE !

  • Little Bright Feather

    The protesters have to stop protesting and start shooting ! Protesting never has done a thing for anyoneTHis is UNLAWFUL and TREASON. Shoot them all – they are stealing, killing and harming families and endangering everyone and everything as DC FEds usually do – they are Communists or they would not be there ! THEY ARE MAKING WAR SO SHOOT BACK ! Where’s the militia ?? PROTECT YOUR FAMILY (WHICH INCLUDES YOUR ANIMALS) AND PROTECT YOUR HOME AND LAND FROM THE INVADER ENEMY ! As for BLM – they are just another UN-Constitutional entity that has no right to exist ! NONE of those Feds have a right to exist and they have no jurisdiciton or authority outside of their own DC borders. Time we enforce that. Time for the old law to get back in action. Any Fed outside of their own borders gets shot ! That was always the law before Communist Lincoln turned this country up-side-down and backwards ! Hey people – you are armed for a reason and this is the reason ! If you believe in freedom and the 2nd Amendment, NOW is the time to prove it ! Words on paper do no good unless you ACT on them and USE them ! The Founders ORDERED us to defend our liberty and homes against all tyranny – SO DO IT !
