LAS VEGAS (AP) - Federal police used a stun gun on a son of a Nevada rancher fighting a roundup of cattle that he claims have historical grazing rights northeast of Las Vegas.

Family members told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that rancher Cliven Bundy's 57-year-old sister also was knocked to the ground during a Wednesday confrontation involving dozens of protesters and several U.S. Bureau of Land Management rangers.

No serious injuries were reported and officials said no arrests were made.

A hand-held video shows protesters and law enforcement officers holding yellow stun guns and leashed dogs yelling at each other as trucks involved in the roundup attempt to drive through on State Route 170.

The BLM has shut down a 1,200-square-mile area while contractors gather about 900 cattle that officials say are trespassing.
