In confrontations on a highway near the Bundy ranch, one of Bundy’s sons, Ammon Bundy, is tasered by a federal official, and Bundy’s sister Margaret Houston is knocked to the ground by other officials, while protesters and family members strike a federal employee with an ATV, kick a K-9 dog and issue verbal threats to officials. No one is injured and no arrests are made. The officials finally leave the area in their ATVs, prompting cheers and yells of:
Get out of our state! BLM go away! BLM go away!
The BLM says that peaceful protests have “crossed into illegal activity” in the last few days, with protesters and family members “blocking vehicles associated with the gather, impeding cattle movement, and making direct and overt threats to government employees.”
