Fishing line throws ATV rider in Oregon

LONG CREEK, Ore. -- The Grant County sheriff says a man was knocked from his ATV this week by a fishing line that was strung across a forest road northeast of Long Creek.
Sheriff Glenn Palmer says 71-year-old George "Rusty" Clark of Monument was driving about 20 mph while moving cattle when he hit the fishing line.
The line struck Clark above the tip of his nose, knocking off his hat and glasses while throwing him backward.
The fishing line had been tied to Ponderosa pine limbs on both sides of the single-lane gravel road. The line was attached at about 3 feet high on one side, and 4 feet on the other.
The East Oregonian newspaper reported that mushroom pickers spotted a similarly strung fishing line near Long Creek during the Memorial Day weekend.
