Protestors in Oregon take down cameras believed to be installed by federal government

Protesters in Oregon who are occupying a national wildlife refuge pulled down cameras Friday that they believe were installed by the federal government.

The group took down at least five of the so-called surveillance cameras.

They said the cameras were placed by the FBI to keep tabs on the group’s comings and goings from the wildlife refuge, which they have occupied since January 2.

The group said local residents alerted them to the cameras, about 15 miles from the refuge.
