County commissioners across Eastern Oregon say they will consider opting out of a statewide ban on using hound dogs to hunt cougars if that's what voters want.

There is something defective in the brain that enjoys this as sport.

In a democracy the majority vote rules and the people have a right to vote. Not that I would be happy with a decsion like this.....

That's right, lets get rid of all the predators. Mother Nature has no clue what she is doing.

What is there to consider? Continue an idiotic allowance, or end it through legislation.

The morons that hunt don't understand that they too are being hunted, but not by human!

A cougar is such a beautiful animal. How can one even think of killing them.

This is ridiculus! Man destroyes the habitat, then the animals. Will we ever learn that all these animals we keep destroying were here first? We are the interlopers not them!

So what happens when all the cougars are gone. I hope some organizations educate these people before they vote. I hope that the people vote overwhelmingly to save the cougars. The psychological profile of serial killers is consistent with the characteristic traits of hunters . . . . why promote this type of behavior? There is already so much violence in this world.

What a pathetic idea. Cougars are so beautiful. Hunting them is despicable.

It sounds as if a lot of consideration of both sides of the issue is taking place, but whether it's wolves or wildcats, rancher's interests always seem to take precedence. In addition, using a pack of hounds against a wildcat is tremendously brutal.

The USA has the temerity to criticise the Asian nations for their treatment of elephants, rhinos and tigers, yet the American nation any different. We eat too much meat anyway so why support these damn ranchers.
