Judge revokes grazing permit of rancher whose case sparked militant takeover of Malheur NWR in 2016

PORTLAND, Ore.— Livestock grazing won’t be allowed this year on four eastern Oregon allotments formerly grazed by Hammond Ranches. The Trump administration recently abandoned its appeal of a 2019 court ruling overturning then Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke’s decision to renew the father and son’s grazing permit. 


That decision gives greater sage grouse, redband trout and other imperiled species a much-needed reprieve.
