Cliven Bundy

Receives warning about cattle

1 Jan, 2013

A federal court judge rules that Bundy’s cattle may be removed if he does not move them himself and pay the $300,000 he owes in grazing fees. Bundy’s cattle are grazing on the habitat of the desert tortoise, which is protected by the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy has declined to pay grazing fees since 1993 and has received multiple warnings, but he says that he has rights to the land over the BLM because his Mormon ancestors worked the land before the BLM was formed.
