Mountain Lion Under Minivan Prompts Hound Hunting Reversal in Oregon

After Oregon residents complained of cougar sightings near playgrounds, school bus stops, and under one woman's van, the Oregon House approved a bill that could overturn a ban on hunting cougars with hound dogs.

From the Oregonian:
"House Bill 2624 would allow individual counties to opt out of [a] statewide ban on the use of dogs to hunt cougars if voters approve. "

Rep. Sherrie Sprenger (R) helped champion the bill. "Something is out of balance when...a cougar is under her minivan," she said.
