Oregon has a rich outdoor tradition. Hunting, fishing and trapping helped make the state what it is today. Still, the influence from California is strong. Witness the ongoing fight to impose restrictions on trapping, which has reached fever pitch after a man’s small dog was killed in a trap set to kill otters.
From the Associated Press:
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — The owner of a dog killed by a trap set next to a popular hiking trail in central Oregon has no complaint with trapping otters, raccoons and bobcats for their pelts.
