Mapping threats on public land

Intimidation of federal officials is widespread across the West.

 

From thousands of pages of official reports, we’ve culled dozens of the worst incidents and summarized each one. We passed over the ordinary rowdy encounters with inebriated civilians, focusing on the serious confrontations with anti-government overtones. All mapped incidents have occurred since 2010 and only represent those most egregious and reported. Many incidents go unreported.
