That is why the BLM backed away, to pursue law enforcement of the court order on another day in another setting without the bloodshed the militias were there itching for.
That is why nobody is dead.
The BLM demonstrated decorum, good judgement and a willingness to back away and avoid bloodshed when confronted by those who were willing to stop them from completing their duties with the threat of deadly force.
I believe it shows a very high degree of incompetance that NO ONE in the BLM said, "maybe we shouldn't roll in, armed to the teeth, looking like we're looking for trouble. It's just a buncha cows, afterall".

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
The BLM officers in charge said exactly that. It was not worth the potential for bloodshed they saw coming.
As you may remember it was the BLM who had the good sense to back away so no one would be killed ..."over a bunch of cows."
This could not be construed as "adverse use easement" because charges had been filed every year the trespass and un-authorized use occurred.
