PRINCETON, Ore. (INTELLIHUB) — According to a local Oregon publication, “Late Sunday night the Gadsden “Don’t Tread On Me” flag suddenly appeared at the Bureau of Land Management building outside of Hines, Oregon. The flag was hanging below the U.S. flag on the agency flagpole shortly before midnight. Law enforcement arrived shortly after people began to notice it. The flag wasn’t present Monday morning.”

The Malheur Wildlife Refuge was the location of an armed occupation, a standoff against the federal government for the wrongful imprisonment of the Hammond family, led by Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan, who told Intellihub that Dwight Hammond was ‘threatened with a bullet.’
