Nevada Governor Calls Federal Cattle Roundup ‘Intimidation’

Sandoval says he’s most offended that federal officials have tried to corral people protesting the roundup into a “First Amendment area.”

Federal officials say 277 cows have been rounded up since Saturday from a 1,200-square-mile area that it has closed to the public for the operation about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

The BLM says Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy has allowed his cattle to trespass and graze for decades in the area.
