The occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon is over but not without some tense moments. The lone remaining occupier, David Fry of Ohio, surrendered to federal agents late this morning. Four remaining occupiers had said they would give themselves up around 8 a.m. local time, but it was almost two hours later when three of them surrendered. Fry stayed behind however, saying during a livestream that he would not come out until his grievances were heard. He also said he had a gun to his head and threatened to kill himself.
The occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge began January 2nd. Armed militants led by Ammon Bundy were protesting the return to prison of two Oregon ranchers. Bundy, his brother and nine others were arrested weeks later. Another occupier from Arizona, Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, was killed in a shootout with state troopers.

Cliven Bundy has a court hearing after his arrest last night in Oregon. The 74-year-old Bundy was arrested after landing at Portland International Airport. He's apparently being held on charges related to the 2014 standoff with the Bureau of Land Management at his southern Nevada ranch. Bundy had come to Oregon to support the last protesters holed up at a federal wildlife refuge in southern Oregon.
