MORTON COUNTY, N.D. - Dakota Access Pipeline protesters aren't the only ones receiving funds from donors around the country.

Wayne Papke of Mandan has set up a GoFundMe account called the 'Morton County Heroes fund', which is designed to support law enforcement and the ranchers affected by the protests.

The funds will go to the North Dakota Peace Officers Association for distribution.

Papke has been talking with a farming organization to help ranchers with the costs of lost livestock.
