Cliven Bundy is the apparent owner of a ranch in rural southeast Nevada that is operated by himself and his family. He achieved widespread notoriety, and folk-hero status among the American right wing, in 2014 when he and a number of supporters engaged representatives of the US federal government in an armed standoff. This was, however, merely the climax of a long-time dispute between Bundy and the US Bureau of Land Management.
