NEWS -Wildlife activists pushing to outlaw hunt pens
1 year ago

CHARLOTTE — John Edwards was so haunted by the image of dogs chasing and killing foxes and coyotes in staged hunts that he promised to do something about it.

Along with a coalition of wildlife groups, Edwards is pushing North Carolina officials to ban so-called hunt pens — fenced-in preserves where dogs track foxes or coyotes for sport. Sporting groups say the preserves are a needed way to train hunting dogs and deny accusations of abuse or cruelty. They say the enclosures have good cover and provide escape areas for game.

As part of the campaign, wildlife advocates have started a petition drive to draw attention to controlled hunting preserves. They hope to raise enough public awareness — and outrage — to force the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission to outlaw them.

"It's going to be a tough, tough battle," said Edwards, a member of the North Carolina Wildlife Advocates. "The organized groups of individuals who own the dogs really make up a powerful lobbying group."

A decade-long legal battle is finally coming to a close after the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) agreed to pay the owners of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus $9.3 million for alleging the circus abused their elephants.

The lucrative settlement was announced on Friday, according to papers to filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., Courthouse News reports.

"Animal activists have been attacking our family, our company, and our employees for decades because they oppose animals in circuses," Kenneth Feld, chairman and chief executive officer of Feld Entertainment, said in a statement obtained by Bloomberg. "This settlement is a vindication not just for the company but also for the dedicated men and women who spend their lives working and caring for all the animals with Ringling Bros."
