Pen the Stoops who do this for entertainment instead. They can tell us how entertaining it is after they're victims of it.

Ces animaux ont tout autant le droit de vivre que chacun de nous. Il serait juste normal que nous leur laissions la paix.

I'd like to pen the people and let the coyotes and foxes do the battery!

Sent email! It is too bad that the Virgina state legislators aren’t on a higher level of morality. This very cruel practice should have been banned years ago! I hope that many people will put pressure on the VDGIF to now ban these barbaric penning facilities which does indeed parallel dog fighting and reflects so negatively on the states such as Virginia which allow it!
