Burns, ore.– (KTVZ) Leaders of the armed occupation of Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge paid a surprise visit to a Burns, Oregon community meeting Tuesday, the 19th day of their protest at the refuge headquarters.
The unannounced trip came a few hours after Harney County Sheriff David Ward issued a statement that among other things said law enforcement and hospitals are preparing for “any situation that may occur.”
The surprise appearance of Ammon Bundy and about a dozen fellow militia members added to the already emotionally charged atmosphere of the latest weekly community meeting called by the county.
“I agree with you 100 percent, but get out of my yard!” one person told Bundy as he sat in the bleachers with the others in his group.
Another resident didn’t hold back, telling Bundy: “How dare you come here into our school? Go home and I hope you get arrested on the way there!”
That got applause from some in the crowd.
