BLM pulls workers from Gold Butte after shots fired near property surveyors

The Bureau of Land Management has informed its employees and specialists to avoid of a contested swath of public land in northeastern Clark County after shots were fired near a survey team’s camp last week.

The FBI and Metro authorities are stated to be examining the June 5 event, which unfolded in a remote location at the northern idea of Lake Mead where Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy continues to graze cattle in defiance of federal authorities.

No one was injured, however the three surveyors from the Nevada-based Terrific Basin Institute packed their gear in the dark and swiftly left the location after they stated somebody fired three shots from a neighboring road and afterwards returned an hour later to fire 3 more.

The agency later on directed that “all personnel and service providers are not to work in the Gold Butte area at this time,” said Great Basin Institute co-founder and executive director Jerry Keir, reading from the event report sent by his study team.

A three-person team was collecting information on springs, seeps and cattle troughs for a BLM inventory of the Gold Butte topic. They were arranged to spend a week in the topic about 100 miles northeast of Las Vegas, but at the end of their very first day along the western slope of the Virgin Mountains they were approached by two guys in a car who asked them what they were doing.

The surveyors said the men determined themselves as ranchers and were “really cordial.”

A few hours later, soon after the surveyors climbed into their camping tents for the night at about 9 p.m., they heard a vehicle on the roadway and saw its headlights shining on their camp. That’s when the very first shots were fired.

They informed Metro and the FBI those shots and the second series an hour later came from about a third of a mile far from their campground.

“To my expertise they weren’t shot at, but there was gunfire in the area so they decided they need to leave,” said Terry Christopher, the ecological medical institute’s associate director in Southern Nevada.

Keir called the event “extremely uncommon” for Nevada and “unprecedented” for the Gold Butte location, where hundreds of people from the institute have actually invested more than a years monitoring desert tortoise populations and bring back riparian habitat.

He said the institute is now working to reinforce its emergency situation procedures and review its communication plan with dispatchers and the BLM.

The bureau had little to say about last week’s occurrence beyond a prepared statement explaining what occurred.

“The circumstance is under examination and the BLM is taking suitable security precautions to make sure the safety of its workers and service providers,” the statement read.

Rudy Evenson, spokesperson for the agency in Nevada, said he couldn’t provide any extra info.

The study crew was working in a 600,000-acre topic that federal authorities briefly closed early in 2013 so written agreement cowboys might assemble numerous hundred cows Bundy delegated roam without a license on federal land. The pen operation lasted a week prior to being called off on April 12, 2014, after the rancher’s advocates, including armed militia members, closed down Interstate 15 and marched on the corral holding the cattle.

Bundy stopped paying fees to graze his cattle on public land more than 20 years ago amid a conflict over limitations placed on his operation by federal variety supervisors. The BLM reacted by cancelling the rancher’s grazing authorization in 1994 and closing the land to livestock in 1999. Bundy overlooked those decisions, just as he has two federal court orders directing him to eliminate his animals or have them confiscated.

It’s unclear if the 2 men who spoke with the property surveyors were from Bundy’s cattle ranch or if among them was Bundy himself. Messages left for the rancher Thursday were not instantly returned.

Keir stated the simmering conflict remains to obstruct efforts to study, handle and protect Gold Butte, which has been suggested as a National Conservation Topic for its rugged mountains, sandstone ridges, native American petroglyphs and historic mine websites in between Lake Mead’s Overton Arm and the Arizona border.

Along the Virgin and Muddy rivers near Lake Mead, for instance, security concerns have actually kept employees away from restoration sites where intrusive salt cedar plants are being replaced with native willows. When they do get to the websites, the employees occasionally discover the ground squashed and the saplings consumed by rogue cattle.

“There have been problems,” Keir said. “It’s unfortunate.”
