One dead as FBI busts Malheur Refuge militants

PUBLIC LANDS -- One of the spokesmen for anti-government militants is dead in a confrontation with law enforcement at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon. 

Ammon and Ryan Bundy were arrested.

At least five other occupiers were arrested after a shootout.

News media are covering the scene.

Maybe the refuge will soon be turned back over to the American public... and the birds and wildlife.
