FWC institues provisional ban of fox & coyote penning

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) voted last week to prohibit the practice of fox and coyote penning at least until it reconsiders the issue in June.  FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto said he leaned toward an outright ban of the practice, stating "I'm not sure I'll support the draft rules when they come back," Barreto said. "I don't see any sport in the animals' having no escape. I personally don't agree with the practice."  The Humane Society of the United states welcomed the decision to crack down on the cruel practice:
"We thank Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Chairman Rodney Barreto and the commissioners for their leadership on fox and coyote penning," said Jennifer Hobgood, Florida state director for The HSUS. "Controlling these facilities has long proved next to impossible — escape isn't the point of the game. We urge the commission to enact a complete ban when it revisits the issue in June."
President of HSUS Wayne Pacelle also addressed the issue in a post at his blog, noting that one man who spoke to the commissioners drove more than 300 miles just to tell the commission that he was a Florida citizen and would not tolerate cruel fox pens.
