Dear Honorable Governor Bob McDonnell,
Ban all existing fox pens and abolish the permits being sold at the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.
Fox pens are stocked with wild trapped foxes from their natural enviroment and placed in fenced in enclosures for a sport known as foxpenning. The foxes never get out alive. Hounds are released into these enclosure where they hunt down and kill the foxes. The fox pens are repeatedly restocked with foxes to provide more kills within the enclosures. Over 5000 foxes were stocked in pens this last year.This is a blood sport with no winners. The foxes loose their natural life, the dogs are bred to overpopulation and are subject to horrific short lives when they are no longer trophy winners.
Please Abolish Fox Pens Now!
Thank you .
