According to the old adage, a picture is worth 1,000 words. Using that exchange rate, the numerous images recently uploaded onto the Bundy Ranch’s official Facebook page could fill a novel with allegations of excessive force used by the Bureau of Land Management during its recent occupation.
As Western Journalism previously reported, ample photographic evidence of BLM officers systematically slaughtering cows surfaced soon after the federal agents left the Clark County, Nev. ranch. A new, more disturbing series of pictures, however, more accurately shows the scope of that action and insufficient attempt to bury the cattle in shallow graves.
Flanked by dead cows on either side, one image shows a backhoe removing a dead cow from a hole.
A description of the image concluded this was just one of the holes in which the BLM “threw the cows that they had ran to death or shot.”
Over the weekend, the page grew to include several more pictures of dead cows.
Several videos uploaded to the page show the aftermath of the BLM’s siege, which included damaged property in addition to the loss of livestock.
Images were shared across social media platforms, including through Twitter posts by Bundy supporters like Nevada State Assemblywoman Michele Fiore.

The Bundy Ranch page is not entirely dedicated to documenting the outrageous action of the BLM, though. The family included multiple posts thanking the men and women who risked their own lives to stand up to the federal agents, along with those who donated money and supported their cause in any other way.
That support, the family explained, funded the rescue of several calves.
Additionally, the family thanked members of patriotic rock band Madison Rising, who made a special appearance recently and performed for a large crowd of fans and Bundy supporters.
