We went hiking this weekend in the Umatilla like we always do, and ran into something that really made me mad: a blue tick coonhound in a blaze orange collar and ecollar left next to a truck parked in the middle of the trail near the parking lot. This dog was off-leash, unattended, and guarding the trail aggressively by circling and growling. Owner nowhere in site. I went to the camp manager's office to let someone know and he claims he can't do anything even if he calls the sheriff's office because that section of the trail is BLM land, not county. Apparently contacting their office gets you nowhere either because it's in another city 1.5 hours away. Is it just me, or is this ridiculous? Seriously, no one can write this guy a ticket for blocking the trail with his truck and his aggressive dog just because it's federal land?
