For the better part of six weeks, a group of militarized, anti-government protesters spent their time occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. The incident started when two ranchers were imprisoned due to the fact that fires, which they started, spread and burned federal property that was nearby. To most people, this seems like a pretty common forgone conclusion: you burn federal property, you go to jail. The gang, led by brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy, had differing views on this matter.
During their six-week takeover of the wildlife refuge, the protesters spent their time clashing with authorities, planting explosives throughout the area, destroying private property, and pooping in trenches that oh so coincidentally happened to be located on sacred burial grounds of the Burns Paiute Native American Tribe.
According to Gawker.com:
FBI agents investigating the scene of the Oregon wildlife reserve occupation this week found a trench full of “significant amounts of human feces” that was apparently left by Ammon Bundy’s band of anti-government militants. According to a court filing reported by Reuters, the shit hole was either on top of or next to ‘grounds containing sensitive artifacts’ of the Burns Paiute Native American Tribe.
While the protesters have since abandoned their efforts, I honestly cannot think of a better way to demonstrate your hatred for the American government and its justice system than taking over a largely abandoned wildlife reserve and literally shitting on historical Native American artifacts. Nicely done, fellas..
