With IP3 on the horizon, remind them that most of the counties of Eastern Oregon (their voters) voted in favor moving the border to save their livelihoods. When are they going to acknowledge this loud cry for help?
What is IP3? It’s a petition drive to put another measure on the ballot in 2024, statewide.
Oregon’s Department of Justice issued its analysis of IP-3. It says the measure would remove most of the exceptions allowed under current Oregon law for hunting, fishing, pet breeding and animal harvest for food. It wrote, “The proposed measure would thus criminalize many common farming and ranching practices, as well as recreational and commercial hunting, fishing, and trapping, pest control, and many other practices that are now specifically authorized by law. Commenters noted this would be a far-reaching change to the laws currently governing treatment of animals.”
It would therefore be a crime, under this proposal, to slaughter livestock for food, or to kill rats, mice, or other vermin and pests.
The proposed measure would make many current practices for breeding pets, livestock, and horses a criminal offense.
The proposed measure would thus criminalize many common farming and ranching practices, as well as recreational and commercial hunting, fishing, and trapping, pest control, and many other practices that are now specifically authorized by law.
