RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada rancher says he's trying to determine whether federal agents damaged any of his cattle before they released hundreds of rounded-up bovines in a showdown with angry protesters over the weekend.

Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze says the agency released the cattle to avoid a potentially violent situation in a decades-long dispute over states' rights and grazing on public lands. He says Cliven (KLEYE'-vihn) Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees for trespassing on federal lands since the 1990s.

The BLM suspended the roundup Saturday after armed militia members joined hundreds of states' rights protesters at the scene.

Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore says she fears some of the calves that were seized won't survive because they were separated from their mothers.

Brother Bundy said on an interview with Sean Hannity last night that he had 27 calves who may not survive because they were separated from their mother's milk. It keeps them nourished and hydrated. Without it they would die. I hope Nobamma and the Interior Dept are proud of themselves! We can't allow this liberal administration to continue to tread all over our laws and have them blame us for being bad citizens! We have to vote out as many libs as possible in order to gain back the strength that was once America's. Semper Patriots! Semper America! Semper God!
