Mysterious animal deaths, Idahoans packing sans permits, and no more raw cookie dough

Posted By on Thu, Jun 30, 2016 at 9:24 AM


Scotty Moore, the guitarist in Elvis Presley's original band, died Tuesday. Moore played on hits such as "Mystery Train," "That's All Right" and "Good Rockin' Tonight."

Chickens, cats, rabbits and goats started having seizures. Some died. Residents in a remote part of Stevens County are getting sick, but no one can say why.

Check out the Outdoors Guide in this week's issue. Then go outside and do stuff.
