Note from the Marshal:

Lance,

Does this answer your question brother?  I think those ol’ boys in Nevada and its surrounding states (read: Utah) know just exactly what to do.  Shall we ask our friend what he thinks? ha Ha HA!

FEDS RETREAT FROM NEVADA RANCH STANDOFF

End cattle gathering operation over ‘serious concern’ about safety

After one week, we have made progress in enforcing two recent court orders to remove the trespass cattle from public lands that belong to all Americans.

“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement,” Kornze continued, “we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.
