Investigators are still combing their way through the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, where the Oregon militia occupied the government land for a tense forty days. Reports by The Washington Post have stated that guns, explosives, and booby traps have been left behind by Ammon Bundy and his crew of “Citizens for Constitutional Freedom,” making life difficult for federal agents eager to deem the site clear of danger. Unfortunately, they left behind no leftover tasty snacks, but a byproduct of their treats consumed during the occupation was so prevalent, an investigator had to mention that there was “a significant amount of feces” on the site.
But, how much feces is significant? A turd left in the middle of my hallway is significant for me, but perhaps the FBI knows that these situations always end up with a decent amount of waste leftover at an occupation site. So, for the investigator to say “significant” is interesting to me. How much was there?
Full disclosure: I’m no mathematician, but I attempted to get to the bottom of how much poop could’ve been left behind at the occupation site. I hope to get to the bottom of this through crowdsourcing if need be.
