A second standoff could be in the works if the government gives in to environmental activists’ demands to confiscate livestock owned by Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy, the man’s wife asserts.
Speaking to The Guardian regarding calls from various wildlife groups asking the BLM to seize the embattled family’s cattle, Angie Bundy predicts the fallout of such actions would result in a bigger protest than the historic standoff that occurred in April 2014.
“We’re not afraid,” Angie says. “If you have a bunch of women and children standing out there and protesting, it’ll probably get more people out.”
Cliven Bundy, 70, along with two of his sons were arrested in Oregon earlier this year on felony charges related to the standoff that occurred on their land two years earlier.
