LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- The head of the Bureau of Land Management says federal agents will make sure Cliven Bundy and his supporters are held accountable.

Neil Kornze said that Monday during an interview on National Public Radio.

Kornze says Bundy is the only rancher out of 16,000 with grazing permits not paying any fees.

He didn't say anything about the heat between Bundy and the Bureau but revealed some of his strategy about what could happen next with the Nevada rancher.

The feds could place a lien on Bundy's cattle, forcing him to sell every cow with some of the money going to the government. Some believe that would put him out of business.

Kornze, a native of Elko, was named to the head of the BLM in early April, just after the bureau began its cattle roundup.
