CLARK COUNTY, NV – Back in the day, cattle rustlers plied their trade on horseback.

Now a-days they use trucks and trailers.

And if you believe the last cattle rancher in Clark County, Nevada, Uncle Sam and the Bureau of Land Management boys are using everything from snipers, machine guns, and even helicopters to take his cattle and livelihood.

For the past 20 years, Cliven and Carol Bundy have been in a range war with the BLM that wants him to pay grazing fees on rights Cliven

s family has owned for more than 150 years.

Back in 1993, Uncle Sam imposed a federal grazing fee on Bundy of a buck 35 per head per month.

Today, Bundy figures he’s in to the gang for about 300 grand, but the BLM says it’s closer to a million.

And that’s why Uncle Sam has sent in some of his boys to rustle, or round up, Bundy’s 900 head of cattle.

Folks from all over have turned up at the Bundy place to show their support for the last cattle rancher of Clark County, NV in his fight against the Uncle Sam Gang.

But cowhands and hand-painted signs may be no match for modern-day rustlers wearing red, white, and blue.
