In this May 20, 2013 photo, men belonging to a local self-defense group enter a ranch to recover cattle allegedly stolen by the Knights Templar drug cartel near the town of Cualcoman, Mexico. Self-defense groups started to spring up in February to fight back the Knights Templar drug cartel which is extorting protection payments from cattlemen and lime growers, butchers and even marijuana growers. The federal government sees both the self-defense forces and the cartel as dangerous enemies. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte) less
