The Oregon House approves a law banning the feeding of bears wolves or cougars. Newport Democrat Jean Cowan is the chief sponsor: “In my District, we recently had a tragic case of a woman who fed dozens of bears in her backyard.” Cowan says the bears invaded neighbors homes. One got stuck in a doggy door and some of the bears had to be put down. The bill now moves to the Senate.
