Court: 45 days to remove cattle

9 Jun, 2013

The US District Court for Nevada rules that Bundy has refused to comply with a 1998 court order to remove his cattle from the Bunkerville allotment, and further, he is grazing his livestock on “a broad swath of additional public lands” without approval. Moreover, the court finds that Bundy has caused “irreparable harm” by allowing his cattle to damage the public lands. In response, Bundy argues that the federal government has no jurisdiction over public lands, an argument rejected by Judge Lloyd George. He is again barred from trespassing on those lands, and given 45 days to remove his livestock. If he fails to comply, the government is authorized to seize and remove his cattle.
