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.
