Louisiana Embraces Fox Penning

A bill declaring fox pen hunting to be a folklife heritage of the state of Louisiana was signed into law by Governor Bobby Jindal on Monday, June 9. Officially incorporated into Louisiana’s culture, fox pen hunting will be preserved under the provisions of the bill.

The bill faced criticism, but one representative who supported the measure said that the sport goes back to Charlemagne and has been practiced in the state for years. The bill’s sponsor promoted it as a pro-hunting measure.
