Cattle rancher battle cooling down in Bunkerville

Bunkerville, NV (KTNV) -- The protest scene in Bunkerville has cooled down. But the Bundy family said if the Bureau of Land Management comes back, they will be ready to fight.

While anger remains in the wake of Saturday's battle, it's much quieter on the Western front as the Bundy family works to return to their normal life.

"They are trying to find a cow with a tight bag as we call it. And utter that hasn't been nursed and we've got baby calves that are falling for their mothers and we are trying to put them together," said Cliven Bundy.

Finding those mothers isn't going to be easy because the hundreds of cattle released have scattered over hundreds of thousands of acres.

"We don't know for sure, they could be scattered 20 or more miles across the range," said Bundy.

But while the Bundy family and their supporters are returning to their normal jobs, they said they're not done with the fight.

The BLM is still refusing on-camera interviews, and when Action News asked for comment on Tuesday, officials simply resent Saturday's statement.
