Remember a couple of years ago, Michael Vick was in trouble for “Dog Fighting” Some people were brought up around this and didn’t know it as being wrong. Just like another sport like Dog Racing.
You may have already known about it, but I just learned this morning about “Killing Pens”. Some states have them, some don’t, and some are shutting them down. Indiana Natural Resources is considering the legalization of them today.
From what I have seen and heard and read. ‘KILLING PENS’ is a way to train hunting dogs. The way it works is this. A Coyote or Fox is put in a pen with a number of dogs who attack them. Indiana claims theirs will be different. The animals will be in an open pen. and the Coyotes and Foxes can hide. But can’t a Dog go where a Fox or Coyote can go. They will still be in a pen and running for their lives.
My question. Aren’t Coyotes and Foxes canines just like dogs? If Indiana does this why not make it a money maker. Let the gamblers come in and place a bet on which dog or pack of dogs will kill the Coyote or Fox. But Wait. Isn’t that how Dog Fights are run. But since this would be state sanctioned, that makes it legal.. Right. Can legalized Dog Fights be far behind.
I say this is CRUEL and should not even be considered, in any state.
What do you think?
This Is How I See It.
This just in Indiana Department of Resources has voted to create a permit to allow KILL PENS. Shame on you Hoosiers.
