(04:15) “Penning” involves the trapping, trading and selling of live coyotes and foxes to hound hunting training facilities. The captured wild canines are then released into pens and used to “train” hunting dogs.
Considered “sport” – and legal in many states across the South and Midwest – one coyote or fox may be pitted against packs of hound dogs who are released into the pens to pursue the wild animals- domestic canine pitted against wild canine. This practice parallels dog and cock-fighting – activities made illegal in all U.S. states in the last twenty years. Many penned coyotes and foxes are literally torn apart by the dog pack.
