Hammonds Lose Grazing Permit

Oregon’s most infamous public-lands ranchers have lost their grazing privileges, again, thanks to federal court ruling, according to a report posted today by Associated Press.

The ranchers were convicted of arson in 2012 for a fire they started on federal lands.

They claimed it was to stop the spread of invasive weeds but prosecutors said it was to destroy the remains of deer they killed illegally.

The resentencing of the Hammonds sparked the Malheur Incident in early 2016, which led to the death of a public-lands rancher from Arizona.
