TAKE ACTION NOW! Stop Foxes From Being Tortured and Killed for Sport

Fox-penning is when a wild fox, after being brutally trapped and confined to a small pen, is chased down and then ripped apart by a pack of hunting dogs. Incredibly, this practice is still legal in some states.

I used to think sports was a healthy activity, then I learned hunters call killing a sport just as torturing bulls is culture. How barbaric we need to be to consider torture and death a sort, culture and art. I wonder when hunting the animals torturers and killers will become a legal sport because count me in! Thanks Cal.

What kind of sick mind gets a thrill from such disgusting and barbaric action? May these poor excuses for human beings all have nightmares for the rest of their miserable lives...

How can killing anything be a sport? What has the world lowered itself to become? STOP the MADNESS and save the fox or any other life from such an insane idea. Murder is murder being a living thing and foxes deserve same rights as people. The human race needs to start thinking along these lines or we will be come barbaric and an a lower form of existence the people who come up with this kind of idea are not part of the human race and they should be judged tried and well fill in the blanks most definitely not in the human race's favor

We had to fight so hard against this in Uk against the bloodthirsty sports people . Most of them toffee nosed upper class country people who think its great fun to rip animals apart
Its always going to be a fight to keep the ban and the US must do the same and get it banned Its very cruel
and dogs should be pets, not trained to do this

Signed.. A bunch of sadistic a**holes are allowed to let their dogs tear apart a live fox or coyote, pretending that they are just teaching their dogs how to hunt- when it is really just another bloodsport...

Maybe we should put McDonnell in the tiny cage and then let dogs chase him around and tear him to bits.

This is sick and barbaric! This is not a sport - its a group of crazy eyed sadistic drooling hillbilly's who get together and become sexually aroused by torturing defenseless animals.

I HATE hunting, it is not a sport and people who enjoy this type of activity should have a mental assessment because normal, caring people are against it. I am so angry it is the second hunting story I have read this morning and I really feel like swearing ...........

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, shared and signed. I can't understand what is sportsmanlike to torture a helpless animal. Can't understand how this would be entertainment or make someone feel more manly. To me, it shows a huge lack in our culture. This love of blood lust activities remind me of Rome and their games. It's nothing to be proud and a lot to be ashamed of.
