ROSEBURG - After hearing from two dozen people with differing opinions on trapping practices for predatory animals, the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission decided Oct. 10 to delay a vote on trap check requirements and appoint a committee to study the issue and make recommendations in early 2004.

The seven-member commission is the rule-making body for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The panel meets monthly to adopt policies and administrative rules covering fish and wildlife issues in the state.
