Suspects from Florida nabbed in wildlife trafficking probe

Eighteen men from four states, including Florida, were arrested in Alabama and charged with animal trafficking, according to this story at the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. The men were purportedly operating "fox pens" where animals are released into enclosures and dogs are then permitted to chase them down. The arrests came at the end of a two year investigation and resulted in the seizure of 55 foxes, 25 coyotes and two bobcats, and 33 cardinals that were used as bait.
