IRRIGON, Ore. (AP) - City officials have put a bounty on an invasive weed prevalent in eastern Oregon, telling residents they’re going to pay them a dollar for each bag of puncture vines they collect.

The East Oregonian reports (http://bit.ly/1FwA9lw) Irrigon residents will be able to pick up bags from city hall, fill them with puncture vines, and turn them in for a small return starting June 13. The bounty will be in place until Aug. 30, or when bags run out.

The city is pointing to bike paths, sidewalks and parks as some of the most critical areas that need picking.
