FBI moving in on last four occupiers at Oregon wildlife refuge

FBI agents man the entry to the Burns Municipal Airport in Burns, Oregon(Reuters) – Federal agents on Wednesday moved in on the last four anti-government militants still holed up at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, the FBI said in a statement. The takeover at Malheur, which began on Jan. 2, was sparked by the return to prison of two Oregon ranchers convicted of setting fires that spread to federal property in the vicinity of the refuge. The occupation, led by Ammon Bundy, also was directed as a protest against federal control over millions of acres public land in the West.
