Thank Senator Merkley for re-introducing Sutton Mountain Wilderness legislation

In 2019, Senator Merkley introduced legislation to designate the 58,000-acre Sutton Mountain Wilderness and convey nearly 2,000 acres to the city of Mitchell, Oregon to help the community take advantage of the new wilderness area for local economic development.

Please take a moment now to thank the senator and encourage him to move this legislation through Congress.

Bobcat

Bobcat

Found only in North America, where it is the most common wildcat, the bobcat takes its common name from its stubby, or “bobbed,” tail. The cats range in length from two to four feet and weigh 14 to 29 pounds. Bobcats mainly hunt rabbits and hares, but they will also eat rodents, birds, bats, and even adult deer.

Latin name: Lynx rufus fasciatus
