Video: Protest at Bundy Ranch gets heated, pregnant woman attacked by feds

clash-bundyOn Wednesday, protesters clashed with federal agents in a confrontation the Las Vegas Review Journal said “teetered at the edge of deadly conflict.” By the time it was over, federal agents had reportedly assaulted a cancer victim, set a dog on a pregnant woman and tased Ammon Bundy, Infowars added.

On Wednesday, the BLM and National Park Service said that “peaceful protests have crossed into illegal activity,” which they said included the blocking of vehicles “associated with the gather, impeding cattle movement, and making direct and overt threats to government employees.

“Today,” the statement added, “a BLM truck driven by a non-law enforcement civilian employee assisting with gather operations was struck by a protester on an ATV and the truck’s exit from the area was blocked by a group of individuals who gathered around the vehicle. A police dog was also kicked. Law enforcement officers attempting to protect the civilian federal employee from the attack were also threatened and assaulted. After multiple requests and ample verbal warnings, law enforcement officers deployed tasers on a protestor.”

Another report claims the BLM is planning to enter the ranch property itself:
