FBI Statement on the Malheur Standoff

FBI STATEMENT ON MALHEUR NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE SITUATION

 

The FBI recognizes that many in the community have questions about why we are here and our role in helping to end the occupation of the wildlife refuge. We are here to work closely with Sheriff Ward and our local, state and federal partners to protect the safety and welfare of this community. This occupation has caused tremendous disruption and hardship for the people of Harney County, and our response has been deliberate and measured as we seek a peaceful resolution.
