The Bureau of Land Management on Thursday said that it euthanized two of Cliven Bundy’s bulls in the week that led up to the Nevada ranch standoff on Saturday, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
A BLM spokesperson told the Review-Journal that the bulls were a “safety hazard,” but did not say why.
Rancher Cliven Bundy has been in dispute with the BLM over grazing fees, which led to an armed standoff over the weekend. Federal authorities ended the roundup on Saturday, and Bundy’s alliance declared victory.
Federal authorities would not comment to the Review-Journal about other enforcement remedies for Bundy, who has not paid his grazing fees in 20 years.
