EUGENE, Ore. -- Cougar hunting will be closed through the end of the year in one region of Oregon, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said.

Zone A includes the Oregon Coast and much of northwest Oregon.

No hunting is allowed because the quota for how many cougars can be killed in that region has been met. For Zone A, 180 cougars may be killed per year.

The quota includes cougars killed by hunters or due to damage and public safety issues.

Landowners in the region who face damage or public safety issues may continue to kill cougars from now to Dec. 31.

Cougar hunting will reopen Jan. 1.
