The Oregon Wildlife Refuge Occupiers Left Behind A $4M Mess (PHOTOS)

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service expects to spend $4 million to repair damage that was caused by armed militia members who occupied a federal wildlife refuge in remote Oregon earlier this year, The Associated Press reported Thursday.

Pictures from the wildlife refuge taken by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and published on the Flickr account for the agency’s Pacific region show the extent of the damage to the site caused by the occupiers, as well as the big mess they left behind after spending 41 days at the refuge. The FBI had said that the occupiers had left a “trench of human feces” on or near the refuge, too.
