  • 41 Day Long Occupation of Federal Land in Oregon was a Messy Affair

The 41 day long occupation of federal land in Oregon was quite a messy affair. The occupying militia left behind the maximum in trash and dirt that was possible.

They occupied the federal land for 41 days during which they littered the place which was in Oregon. Malheur National Wildlife Refuge was left a shipwreck of a site after they vacated the premises.

The militia caused some pretty extensive and wholesale destruction. Pics of what was left behind after the occupiers went their way show the extent of damage and pollution that was spread thanks to their utter lack of good manners.   

On January 2nd, the occupiers took over the premises. There were bottles and other refuse all over the place when they finally left. The occupiers were up in arms about federal land rules.

They went through office ledgers and Native American artifacts. Over 26 people have had criminal charges brought against them. One of these is Ammon Bundy.

Another one is Jake Ryan. He dug a trench which was later on found filled with human feces. This was after the occupation had come to an end. 

The tribal natives were able to pay a visit afterwards. The site is basically a burial ground. Many of the artifacts were also broken and vandalized. The protesters seem to have done a lot of damage to the site.

Only afterwards was this known and it is a source of sadness. Now everyone is trying to make the site habitable once again.

To rebuild the land for wildlife will be an uphill battle after the amount of pollution and trash that have been spread by the occupiers. This scare and problem having to do with patriotism cost the government $6.5 million to handle. It was a headache. 

On February 11th, the occupation had officially ended. Yet the place was left in tatters. It was a total pandemonium that would take a long time to regain a sense of balance. When the media was allowed in to take pictures and video footage of the scenes, they were left rubbing their eyes in disbelief.

“It’s a little unsettling… when we come in every day we’re trying to take care of the land and build it up for wildlife,” biologist Linda Beck told KOIN (via NYTimes).

The maximum amount of carelessness and negligence had been shown by the occupiers. A lot will need to be done in order to save the land from ultimate disaster. An inventory of this “situation normal absolutely fouled up” is a must.
