Help Ban Live Bait Dog Training In Indiana

Ethically Indefensible

Ecologically Reckless

Counter To Sound Scientific Wildlife Management


Current loopholes in Indiana’s wildlife regulations allow the capture and killing of coyotes and red foxes by dogs in the wild. Moreover, no rule or law exists prohibiting the trapping and selling of coyotes and foxes in state or across state lines to “penning” facilities where these wild canines are then used to “train” hunting dogs in “running pens.” Operators of the running pens often charge a fee for individuals to “train” their hunting dogs on the captive coyotes and foxes. Penned wild canids are often killed by being torn apart by the dog pack. Other States are moving away from such barbaric activities such as the use of “running pens”.
As a society we have decided that dog and cock fighting are ethically indefensible and we have banned these practices nationwide. Setting dogs onto wild animals has no place in a civilised society.

Does Indiana want to be known worldwide as supporting and
facilitating such cruel ‘sports’?

PLEASE TAKE ACTION TODAY TO HELP STOP THE BARBARISM!

YOUR HELP is needed ahead of a crucial meeting of the Indiana Natural Resources Commission on March 16th 2010. A decision will be made on two citizen’s petitions. One is to disallow running pens in Indiana and the other is to stop the killing of foxes and coyotes by dogs.

Please contact the NRC officials listed below and the Governor of Indiana in support of both petitions.

• Email Jennifer Kane jkane@nrc.in.gov
