NOTE: This is an AP story from 2011 written by Scott Sonner. Clearly, the subject matter is still very relevant today as the federal government’s War on the West continues to escalate.


RENO, Nev. – The federal government seized Raymond Yowell’s cattle – all 132 head – and hauled them across the state and sold them at auction.

Then the U.S. Bureau of Land Management sent Yowell a bill for $180,000 for back grazing fees and penalties, and later garnished part of his Social Security benefits.
