    If anyone is interested about this, the bill passed the house and is now moving onto the senate.

    Yes, interested. I have sent emails to my reps. Along with them, I also sent this link, Mountain Lion Attacks from 2001 to 2010 , it's a real eye opener for someone that isn't aware of the dangers of human/cougar encounters. I recommend it to anyone that's curious how common attacks have become. Thanks Gelfreak91 for the heads up.

    I have often wondered how many 'serious' cougar hunters there were in Oregon that used dogs prior to the ban. Were they the #1 factor that kept the population numbers in check?

    The fed trapped just killed three near me. One reason I will not have anything to do with the Humane society, is that had heavy sensationalized anti-cougar hunting ads to promote the original passing of the bill, where dogs could not be used to hunt cats. Sadly it is the people in the city who pays for that mistake, it is the people who are in the rural areas. F&G are more capable at managing our wild life than self appointed protectors of the wild life folks.
