The group, led by Ammon Bundy, the son of southern Nevada upstart cattleman Clive Bundy, has issued a demand that an eastern Oregon father and son not go to prison for what Bundy claims was a simple act of protecting his property – backfiring toward a blaze that threatened their cattle and holding pens. A federal judge ruled otherwise, ordering the two to surrender Monday to the Harney County Sheriff.
Meanwhile, federal, state and local authorities are not saying much, other than “they’re working on a solution.”
