There was no sign of law enforcement outside the wildlife refuge on Sunday night, though the Oregon State Police urged people to stay away and federal authorities said they were monitoring the situation.
At the entrance to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, people associated with the occupying group blocked the road.

Other local ranchers periodically drove up, looked and then drove away.
If anything, this whole nonsense is an end result of right-wing rhetoric designed to distract these fools' minds away from the real theft going on under their noses, and that is by the billionaire, Wall Street, and neoliberal gang out to plunder the public sector for private gain.
