WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT PLAN
Cougar Management Plan Content and Purpose
(1) The 2006 Oregon Cougar Management Plan establishes state policy and direction for Oregon’s cougar management program. The 2006 Plan replaces previous plans. Chapters V (Cougar Management Objectives) and VI (Adaptive Management Process) of that 2006 Plan, as well as its Appendix I (Glossary), are incorporated here by reference as administrative rule. Copies may be obtained at the Salem headquarters office of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, 4034 Fairview Industrial Drive SE, Salem, OR 97302. The 2006 Plan also serves as an informational and historical document for the Department.
(2) To the extent practicable, at least once every five years the department shall review the cougar management plan and make recommendations to the Commission for any changes to the plan. Review of the plan should include incorporation of the best available science and should also seek comments from other scientific experts in Oregon and other western states.
