Here is a more complete and thoughtful run-down on the armed occupation of the Malheur NWR headquarters building. The group involved are right-wing fanatics, and their numbers are much smaller than originally posted. The entire article is very interesting, and some of these issues go way back, such as the historical over-grazing of federal lands by some local ranchers.
For additional historical context, read Nancy and Denzel Ferguson’s excellent book, “Sacred Cows at the Public Trough”. They used to work at Malheur, managing the field station as I recall… Some things have changed since then in Harney Co., some things not so much.
