UNDATED (KDAL) - Gogebic Taconite has temporarily pulled the armed guards they hired to protect drilling sites in Iron and Ashland Counties in northern Wisconsin.  The company hired Bulletproof Security after protesters attempted to interrupt the drilling operations in the Penokee Hills area.  Some allege the guards, wearing camouflage and carrying assault rifles were there to intimidate the opposition.  The guards were pulled when it was discovered the security firm was not licensed to operate in Wisconsin.
