Oil company sics dogs on Native Americans protesting pipeline through their burial grounds


Native Americans and other protesters were on the receiving end of pepper spray and attack dogs as they attempted to slow construction of a pipeline they claim cuts through tribal land and burial grounds, reports the Daily Mail.

Protesters turned out Saturday in an attempt to halt the progress of the $3.8 billion oil pipeline that is cutting through their land and the property of others in southern North Dakota.

A federal judge is expected to rule before September 9 on whether the Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners’ Dakota Access pipeline can continue through the land after the Army Corps of Engineers granted permits to the developers.
