(NaturalNews) It is now emerging that the Bureau of Land Management committed horrific atrocities against cattle during its armed occupation and siege of the Bundy Ranch near Bunkerville, Nevada. Photos are now emerging of the mass graves where BLM hastily tried to bury the cattle they killed. BLM agents used government helicopters to run down cattle in 90+ degree heat while shooting the cows that couldn't keep up. The cattle that survived were then corralled into abusive "bovine concentration camps" that resulted in many cattle dying from dehydration and stress.
In an attempt to cover it up, BLM used machinery equipment to construct mass graves, but the arrival of armed citizens who faced off against the federal agents caused BLM to have to evacuate the area, leaving their cattle atrocities easily spotted by the public. (See photo below of one of the cows killed by BLM.)
BLM engage in horrific animal atrocities and abuse of animals
It is now emerging that scores of Bundy's cattle were abused and killed, with many being dumped into mass graves. This story was first revealed by 21stCenturyWire.com. This is on top of the tasering, beating, wrong arrests and threatening of citizens with attack dogs during last week's standoff.
In all, some $3 million of taxpayer money was spent by the government to illegally steal those cattle, only to sell many of them across the Nevada state line in Utah and California, according to 21st Century Wire.
Here's just one photo of the cattle slaughtered by the BLM. Many more photos are on the way, according to our sources. The mass graves are being exhumed right this minute, and the findings are heartbreaking:
Here's a photo taken from the air of the BLM's secret bovine concentration camps. After this photo was released, the BLM ordered the FAA to shut down the air space over the ranch, creating a wartime "no fly zone" to prevent more pictures from being taken:
Is BLM a criminal racketeering operation?
Some have made a legal observation that the BLM, which falls under the U.S. Department of the Interior, may be guilty of racketeering under federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corruption Organization) statutes.
This photo was posted by Assemblywoman Michel Fiore. In a widely-shared tweet, Fiore says, "Graphic Photo - One of many casualties from the #BundyRanch standoff. More to follow soon. #ShameOnBLM"
During a live radio broadcast of "The Pete Santilli Show" on the Guerilla Media Network (GMN), Fiore revealed new details of "the BLM's method of herding where they have slaughtered horses and cows."
"This time we have video of it, and pictures of it," she said. "I did post the first picture of one cow [that] was shot in the back of the head from a helicopter. I personally helped save a calf who still had an umbilical cord attached to her as she was separated from her mom. It is such a disgusting event ... they (BLM) don't herd cattle -- they slaughter cattle."
"If you look at the stewardship of land, and herding of cattle, first of all these particular cattle that were grazing on 600,000 acres -- understand that when the Bundy family would herd their own cattle, there would be water taps to where the cattle would go down to the water and herd them humbly and softly -- no cruelty, no abuse, herding them to where the cattle could get injured," Fiore continued. "We now have an evidenced-based argument with how the BLM cannot take care of that cattle. We have cows giving birth (in the federal pen) where baby calves have been stepped [on] and killed."
"They herd animals with helicopters, ATV's and shotguns... If any cows get out of line, the get a bullet to the back of the head," she added. "Make sure the BLM are off state land and make sure the BLM are not allowed to herd cattle again".
She said she observed, near the BLM's "compound" adjacent to the Bundy ranch, that personnel there were "digging holes."
"They tried to bury some cows on the compound," she said, "but I guess they didn't dig the hole deep enough." She said the legs of some cows were "sticking up out of the dirt."
BLM head Daniel P. Love caught flat-out lying about cattle deaths
Observers who gathered to offer support to Bundy and his family noted early on that BLM officials had brought in backhoes and earth movers, though initially agents would not answer residents' questions as to why the equipment was needed. Later it was suspected that BLM-led contractors used them to dig holes to bury dead cattle after attempts to aggressively herd them off Bundy's ranch. Many suspect that the contractors may have disposed of some cattle off-site, 21st Century Wire reported.
Government tactics caused death of cattle
"It was confirmed by ranchers and observers last week of how the BLM and their 'contract cowboys' had deployed aggressive practices whilst rustling the Bundy's herd, using tactical helicopters [and] forcing cattle to removal zones, often times driving cows uphill in 90-degree heat -- a lethal practice known to cause tremendous stress and exhaustion to the animals, causing sickness and even premature death," the wire service reported.
"In addition, reports by observers confirmed that spring heifers who were subject to abusive BLM tactics were forced to abandon some calves behind to hide in the desert bush (a common practice by mothers who are being rustled, who later can backtrack to retrieve their young) putting the calves at risk of death."
Critics now believe the BLM and Clark County Sheriff's Office could face legal challenges for reckless handling of the situation. It is now obvious that they were all complicit in the commission of horrific atrocities against animals.
The lamestream media continues to pretend none of this ever happened, hoping a nationwide blackout on the story will cause it to go away.
