The question on everyone’s minds when Bureau of Land Management officers first swooped in to take over public lands being used for grazing by the Cliven Bundy family was, “why did they bring in bulldozers?” The answer was to dig mass graves for Bundy cattle.
Bundy’s wife Carol and daughter Stetsy Bundy appeared “On the Record” Monday and told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren that so far they’d discovered the carcasses of eight of their cattle lying in shallow graves.
“Four from the pit, two in the corral and then two bulls out on the range that we found,” Stetsy Bundy acknowledged.
When asked if the bureau had offered any explanation, Carol Bundy said, “We don’t communicate with the BLM as to why they do whatever they do.” She added that the cattle that were euthanized included “mother cattle” to increase the herd, and “steers that we send to auction.”
In addition to killing the cattle, bureau officers had unnecessarily destroyed improvements made to the public land by the Bundys to make it more suitable for grazing, according to Stetsy Bundy.

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., also appeared “On the Record” and told Van Susteren that this was another example of “outrageous overstepping by federal authorities.”
