End Hound Hunting of Deer in Kisatchie National Forest, Louisiana

Tell the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, as well as the National Forest Service, that the treatment of both wildlife and hunting dogs should be taken seriously, and that hound hunting is cruel and unsporting. Tell them that the hound hunting of deer should not be permitted in Kisatchie National Forest.

INFORMATION

Although the number of states that still allow the chasing, harassing and killing of wildlife with packs of radio-collared dogs is on the decline, this so-called sport is still permitted in Louisiana.

Hound hunters often outfit their hounds with radio collars and use GPS devices so they don't have to keep up with the chase. Sometimes, the hunting dogs literally tear the animals apart before the hunter arrives.

The hunting dogs themselves often fare poorly, as they are treated more as hunting tools than pets. Hunters frequently abandon dogs who fail to perform well; dogs who become too sick, injured or old to keep up with the chase; and sometimes those who become pregnant. Other dogs are either killed outright or abandoned at already-overburdened animal shelters once they've outlived their usefulness.
