New rules for Oregon beachcombers: pet owners will have to keep positive control of their animals when visiting Oregon beaches, under a new rule proposed by the State Parks Department. But that doesn't necessarily mean they have to be on leash. Chris Havel of the Parks Department says if the pet can be controlled by voice, that's good enough, under the proposed new rules. Also, finding items worth more than $100 must be turned into authorities. Chris Havel at the Parks Department says beachcombers can keep anything they find that's worth under a hundred. The new rules are part of a long list of proposed changes.
Public hearings will be held later this month.
