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.
