Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward is asking the militia group in Oregon, Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, to leave. This past Saturday, the group seized the main office building at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which is primarily a bird sanctuary. The militia group is led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy, sons of Clive Bundy, the Nevada rancher who was involved in a dispute with the federal government′s Bureau of Land Management, an agency of the Department of the Interior back in 2014. They claim that the seizure of the bird sanctuary in Oregon is in response to the resentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond, a father and son team of ranchers. They were convicted of starting a brush fire which accidentally burned some 127 acres of federal land. The Hammonds, ages 73 and 46, were originally sentenced to serve three months in jail, but a federal judge claimed that this was well below federal sentencing guidelines. So both men were resentenced to serve one year and have turned themselves in.
