Protests turned violent in some places over the weekend when construction crews destroyed an Indian burial ground in North Dakota.

Tear gas was released, and attack dogs were even brought out during the protest.

Officers say the protestors got too aggressive, and their actions got out of hand. They’re protesting the construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline, a nearly $4 billion project.

Protestors here in Houston were in front of the KHOU 11 studios Monday supporting those in North Dakota in their fight against the pipeline. They came armed with signs and drums and say those building the pipeline are stomping on sacred Indian land.
