Tell the S.C. Legislature to End Fox Penning

Michelle Hodkin started this petition to South Carolina State House and

South Carolina hunters are afraid that with recent legislation in FL, their beloved fox pens are heading for extinction. 

For those who don’t kill live animals for fun and aren’t familiar with the phrase, fox pens are fenced in areas in which foxes, usually imported from other states, or coyotes, which can be trapped in the wild , are placed in the enclosures. After which hunting dogs are then turned lose in a pack and trained to attack the lone animal. For sport. 

It should be enough for hunters that they’re legally able to hunt and kill foxes and coyotes. They shouldn’t be allowed to trap them to do it. There are nine fox pens in the Greenville, SC area alone, and while the hunters are concerned about their fun, I'm concerned about animal cruelty. Send a message to South Carolina and let them know that you are, too.
