Like shooting fish in a barrel. As smart as foxes are what chance do they stand against dogs in an enclosure?

This is a barbaric practice that needs to end. While the state is at it, how about ending deer hunting w/dogs!

Let me get this right..because YOU considered killing foxes that
are confined in an enclosed arena a "family oriented event" it's okay? Guess you go to dogfights too? Please, do you really think this is healthy event for children? We know the adults are beyond hope but to expose children to this heinous event is beyond the pale.
I went to my local fox pen owned and operated by the Goodman's on Belches Rd. so I have keen insight into what actually happens. Spare me. It's barbaric.
