VICTORY!  Permanent ban on coyote and fox penning in Florida!
Coyote News Fact Sheet Vol I
Coyote News Fact Sheet
Project Coyote and partners declared a victory for wildlife, after the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission voted unanimously to PERMANENTLY ban coyote and fox pens statewide.
Penning involves sending packs of domestic dogs into a fenced-off enclosure to chase to exhaustion and often tear apart a captive coyote or fox.  There are still 11 states in which this is allowed, and we are working to end penning nationwide.
I'm honored to have been invited to speak- along with Project Coyote Advisory Board member, Dr. Marc Bekoff- at the first ever international symposium on animal welfare in conservation practice at Oxford University. Read my Huffington Post blog.
