Jayne Miller of Oregon Cougar Action Team on Two Bills that Would Allow Use of Dogs to Hunt Cougar

Host Stephanie Potter interviews Jayne Miller, rancher and head of the Oregon Cougar Action Team, about two bills currently being discussed in the Oregon Legislature that would relax the ban on using hound dogs to kill cougar. In 1994 Oregon passed Ballot Measure 18 which bans hunting bears with bait or cougars with dogs. 

Now two cougar-related bills before the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. House Bill 2624 would exempt counties from the statewide prohibition on using dogs to hunt cougars and black bears, if county voters approve. It also would allow the use of bait to hunt bears.

No on 26-151 interview with Kellie Barnes

Voters have received the Voters pamphlet and will get their ballots in the next few days. One of the biggest issues facing voters on May 21, 2013 is the issue of fluoridating water. Measure 26-151-ask voters ”Shall Portlanders fluoridate its drinking water supply”. Both sides of this debate were invited to participate in this conversation, unfortunately the pro-side didn’t respond. I will talk with Kellie Barnes, a local small business owner and a volunteer with Clean Water Portland on the No on 26-151 campaign. Have you decided? What questions do you have about fluoridation? Is it safe for food and pets? What questions do you have for the pro side? Let us know your thoughts!
