Stop Issuing Permits for Fox and Coyote Penning

Fox penning is a blood sport in which dozens of dogs compete in a fenced-in area to chase—and sometimes rip apart—foxes and coyotes. The fox or coyote must run for his life inside fences where there is no hope of getting away. The foxes and coyotes provide amusement for participants who travel from state to state to wager on their dogs.


Trapped in the wild by steel jaw leghold traps, foxes and coyotes are packed into cages with other injured animals and hauled hundreds of miles without food or water to be sold to pen operators to be ripped apart by dogs.


To stock their pens, operators have been known to associate with illegal wildlife traders as there is a constant demand for fresh wildlife for the fox pens.


We ask that you stop issuing permits for fox penning in Indiana. Florida has recently banned this blood sport.
