Redmond Mayor George Endicott was in Salem for a House vote Wednesday; he says it drew a lot of testimony. Back in 1994, Oregon voters approved a cougar hunting ban and many rural residents have complained loudly since then that the large cats pose a serious threat to humans and pets and livestock.  "Yeah, there was one of the Eastern Oregon districts the loss of calves, newborn elk calves has doubled in the last five years because of it, so I mean humans intervene right; I mean we have been managing wild life for a long time now so this is an example of one of those times when we have to put it back into balance a little bit." The Bill passed 45 to 14. It needs a two thirds majority vote in each House to override the 1994 statewide measure that banned dogs being used to hunt cougar.
