FERNDALE - Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal is working with county supervisors on a shooting ordinance to protect Ferndale farmers, livestock and homes from being victim to irresponsible target shooting.

The issue has been ongoing near Fernbridge along the Eel River for years, as it has become a popular place to practice shooting - but dangerous for nearby locals who say they've had bullets "fly over their heads.”

Right now shooting along the river bar is lawful, but restrictions could be coming soon.

Sheriff Honsal tells us a draft ordinance could be ready for public comment within the next three weeks.
