Last week, an Oregon man’s venison was confiscated by officials because it came from the first mule deer to test positive for chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Montana. The man’s relative, a Montana hunter, had legally shot the mule deer and given the Oregon man the carcass. “We don’t have CWD, but it’s a very close call,” Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) spokeswoman Michelle Dennehy told the Mail Tribune. ODFW officials were contacted by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks once MFWP confirmed that the mule deer did, in fact, have CWD. As goHUNT previously reported, Montana has been carefully monitoring CWD and testing mule deer during this season; two samples from two separate mule deer recently came back suspect for the fatal disease. ODFW seized packaged meat and uncovered most of the butchered deer after the man dumped them in the Madras, Oregon area. Other parts were discovered “buried in a landfill and don’t run the risk of getting into contact with wild deer here,” according to the Mail Tribune. State law prohibits importing cervid parts from a known CWD state. The Oregon man, who remains unidentified, was cited for importing the CWD-infected parts into the ...

Before Cave Creek trickles through the dining hall of the historic Chateau at the Oregon Caves, it pools into a small, penny-filled pond. It’s a sparkling blue-sky day last July, and I’m sitting on the pool’s bank watching as a butterfly zips about the maidenhair ferns and thimbleberry bushes at the water’s edge. An American Dipper flitters in and out of the pond. On a day as beautiful as this, I have to question what could possibly compel me to spend the next three hours in a dark, wet cave. Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve is home to what’s called a “solution cave.” This type of cave is formed when underground water and naturally occurring acids dissolve rocks and minerals while passing through pores and fissures. This particular cave has about 15,000 feet of passageways formed over millions of years as water seeped down from the old-growth coniferous forests above. Unlike most solution caves, this is a rare instance of one formed in marble rather than the more common limestone or gypsum. In 1909, President William Howard Taft established the cave as a 480-acre national monument. In 2014, Congress designated the two-fifths of a mile that Cave Creek travels under ...

A school district in Oregon is under fire for following the law — mostly because they are the only ones doing it.

Officials at the Salem-Keizer School District recently told staff and teachers that under Oregon law they must report to law enforcement or state officials if they learn, or suspect, a student is sexually active.

Failure to report could lead to a state investigation, job loss or a misdemeanor charge.

“We do training on mandatory reporting every year,” Lillian Govus, a spokeswoman for Salem-Keizer, told Fox News on Friday. “A hypothetical question was posed on what happens regarding sexual activity.”

“We teach our students how words matter. The legislators are learning that their words are impacting our students."

- Lillian Govus

She said they sought legal clarification and it was determined that sexual conduct between teens falls under mandatory reporting.

OREGON – A 15-year-old boy faces charges after a wildfire tore through Oregon’s Hood River County. The fire, which destroyed 10,000 acres, started in early September. Liz FitzGerald, 48, said she was hiking when she passed a group of teens who were giggling after throwing fireworks into Eagle Creek Canyon, according to Willamette Week. “I passed the teenagers at that point,” FitzGerald told the paper. “It was a smaller group of maybe seven or nine. Just as I was passing them I said ‘Do you realize you just started a forest fire?’ and the kid said, ‘Well, what are we supposed to do about it now?’ And I yelled over my shoulder ‘Call the freaking fire department!’” As soon as she started to smell smoke, FitzGerald gave up on her hike and turned around to find the hillside already burning. She ran to the parking lot and managed to find a U.S. Forest Service officer. A joint investigation by the U.S. Forest Service and Oregon State Police led to the teen suspect’s arrest. The minor, who wasn’t identified, faces counts of reckless burning, depositing burning materials on forest lands, unlawful possession of fireworks, criminal mischief and recklessly endangering other p ...

BEAVERTON, Oregon - At 3:45 p.m. today, an alert neighbor called 911 to report smoke coming from the roof of an adjacent home on Wheaton Lane in Beaverton. Based on the caller's description of the smoke that continued to worsen, 911 dispatchers immediately upgraded the call to a first alarm to ensure adequate resources were sent to the scene. The Battalion Chief covering the northern part of the district arrived within four minutes of being dispatched to the house fire. Upon arrival, he confirmed that smoke was coming from the roof of the home and began managing incoming resources that arrived on scene shortly after. Firefighters from the Farmington and Brockman Road stations immediately began a search of the home and determined that the bulk of the fire was in the attic and an exterior wall. Once the primary search was complete and no occupants were found inside, they began an aggressive fire attack, knocking down the fire in less than 20 minutes. The firefighters' quick response and fire attack methods helped contain the fire, smoke, and water used to extinguish the fire resulting in minimal damage to the home.

Crews working the Chetco Bar wildfire had more to consider than just the flames once it spread into a quarantine zone where a disease was devastating trees. Usually the parking lot at Brookings’ harbor is filled with boat trailers, rusty pickup trucks and tourists. But this day in late August is not a usual day. There’s a wildfire burning five miles from town — and the vehicles coming through are much, much larger. Jesse Dubuque, a resource advisor for the Chetco Bar fire, directs the driver of a fire truck to a large shallow pool, about 6-inches deep with metal tracks leading in and out. “Vehicles that have been up on the fire or going up to the fire, they come and they drive up on to it,” she says. It's called a weed wash. “There's a pressurized water system that sprays all the contaminants (and) dirt,” Dubuque says. This is the front line in preventing the spread of sudden oak death, a plant disease that is killing trees by the thousands along Oregon's south coast. Tanoaks are the primary species affected, although there are dozens of the plants and shrubs that can be carriers. Sudden oak death has had ecological as well as economic consequences for t ...
