Graphic Photos Show What The BLM Really Did To Bundy’s Cows
Western Journalism ^ | Apr 16, 2014 | B. Christopher Agee

Posted on 04/17/2014 9:56:11 AM PDT by Ray76

According to several reports breaking on social media Wednesday, federal agents targeting the Bundy Ranch in Clark County, Nev. did much more than merely herd hundreds of cows away from the site prior to backing down from their position Saturday. The following graphic images are being distributed by the Bundy Ranch as proof that multiple head of cattle were slaughtered, apparently under the direction of federal Bureau of Land Management officers.

The photos are of the same cow from different angles.

Yup. One cow.

From what I’m hearing (mass graves, abandoned calves, run-over turtle nests) there’s a lot more, but they aren’t documenting it.

The photos will make the story. These people have GOT to get PR savvy. (The fact that he never hired a lawyer tells me that he has no idea how to deal with the courts or the PR crap. It’s frustrating.)

Maybe someone needs to send PETA the pics. Either they missed the story or they care more for turtles than cows.

“”The photos are of the same cow from different angles.””

Saw this yesterday and thought the same thing....shows very clearly the one ear in the same position over and over. Doesn’t matter how many pictures they take, it’s the same position of the ear.....

Question:

Has there ever been a study that shows how much harm the cows grazing does to the turtles?

I would like to see the results of such a study.

Has the mass bovine grave been excavated yet? I wonder how many cows they are trying to hide.

They also destroyed his water tanks, fencing and water pipes.

The government said this was done to return the land back to a natural state...

Clark County’s Short-Term Desert Tortoise Habitat Conservation Plan was predicated upon a misconception.
“The Las Vegas Valley provides crucial habitat for the desert tortoise, but had been facing powerful development pressure from Las Vegas, which was one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States for many years.”

“Formally approved by the USFWS in August 1991, the HCP (ed. Habitat Conservation Plan) permitted 22,352 acres of development to occur in the Las Vegas Valley in exchange for the establishment of a 400,000-acre desert tortoise preserve. Earlier, in a related action, the Conservancy helped settle a major lawsuit over the listing of the species, which has resulted in over $1 million being allocated to desert tortoise research.”

“Clark County’s Short-Term Desert Tortoise Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) was a landmark mitigation agreement developed by The Nature Conservancy and other conservation partners to assure the preservation of the desert tortoise while allowing development in the Las Vegas Valley to continue.”

Tortoises are an “indicator” species, holding that if the animal is having a hard time surviving for some reason, other animals are as well.

“Losses in tortoises are due to a respiratory disease, exacerbated in part by the release of captive tortoises into the wild.”

I know that patriots are angry about the Bundy situation, but I think that the multiple pictures show only one cow.

And of course, PETA and the Human Society will both get right on this. /s

On one hand I agree with you.

On the other hand, patriots shouldn't jeopardize their own integrity by presenting multiple pictures of what appears to be one cow and then complain when the WH Photoshops pictures of Obama.

At least three pictures of the same animal. Can’t tell about the other two pictures.

Watch for it.

Tin horn bureaucrats know they’ve ‘arrived’ when Obama gives them their own SWAT Teams to push citizens around. The name of the game is intimidation, then more intimidation...

Yes. You’re right, except phony ID is a far more important matter than a photo of a dead cow.

Why don’t you contact the Bundy’s with your concerns and ask for pictures of other dead cattle.

The bottom cow is different cow than the one cow being shown at differnt angles in order to document the wounds. The cow was shot and it looks like possibly stabbed a few times? The different angles show with certainty that the cow didn’t just fall over dead—it was killed.

“The most complete data is from the Beaver Dam Mountains. Woodbury and Hardy reported a tortoise population density of 150 per square mile in 1948. BLM reduced cattle grazing a few years later and eliminated cattle in 1970. Coombs reported a tortoise density of 39 per square mile in 1974. In these 26 years cattle use was reduced 100 percent and tortoise numbers were reduced 74 percent.

“These tortoises were doing so poorly a veterinarian, Dr. Jarchow, was consulted. He reported all six specimens were suffering from osteoporosis caused by a protein deficiency in their diet. Dr. Jarchow examined five specimens from the same mountains that shared their range with cattle. He reported these specimens were all healthy and well nourished.

“The historical record proves conclusively that tortoise thrive when cattle are on the range with them and without cattle grazing they are always malnourished and unhealthy and their numbers plummet.

Is there any proof of that? Or do we now automatically take the side of someone we believe is on our side.

Can they venture out on BLM land without risking another armed confrontation? They would probably need to bring a backhoe.

I hear posting the words “big government” or “sovereign nation” gets the fascists’ a$$es in a snit.

You're welcome. I swiped that info from B4Ranch who posted it first. You can glean a lot more useful information on this topic by following his posts. Constitutional aspects of land ownership for one example.

Someone wondered if bison helped the Desert Tortoise before cattle were introduced and I posted my thoughts on that here. I don't think anyone knows for sure what tortoise populations were before cattle ranching came in.

Fox News toured the damage — allegedly caused by the Bureau of Land Management — which included holes in water tanks and destroyed water lines and fences. According to family friends, the bureau’s hired “cowboys” also killed two prize bulls.

There is a mass grave that has not been excavated yet. The Bundy’s have 27 calves with no mothers so the BLM boys killed at least some of the cattle either by shooting them or by running them to death with choppers.

Its the US govt folks. EVIL personified. Never doubt it for one moment.

There is a mass grave [emphasis added] that has not been excavated yet.

While I'm open to the possibility that BLM slaughtered Bundy cattle, since the so-called mass grave has not been excavated yet, it may turn out not to be a mass grave.
