Federal judge rules that timber sales violated Endangered Species Act

The habitat of the northern spotted owl would be impacted by the sale of 18,000 acres of timber land, which is a violation of the Endangered Species Act, an Oregon District Court judge ruled. The News-Review in Roseburg, Oregon, reported that a portion of those timber sales is located on the scar of a forest fire, known as the 2019 Milepost 97 Fire near Canyonville.
