I'll get my pa in law to snap a pic next time he runs. The puppy pen he runs in always have foxes in trees. I can't recall ever seeing dogs catch a fox, but seen a few yotes caught.

"Treeing a fox" normally means he/she went into a hole or a den, which by literal terms is where "fox hole" came from.

Also, if you ever heard of "sly as a fox", a fox is pretty crafty, and it's rare for the dogs to catch them, especially the red fox.

A coyote on the other hand, is not as sly and doesn't have the stamina that a fox has, and they will be caught from time to time.

As mentioned though, usually these pens are stocked by the owners who pay a pretty good price for them, so it is not their intention to catch them!

Basically the fox pens are a tool to train dogs, keep them in shape, and for the sport of the chase, at least here in Louisiana.

Gray fox can climb. They usually pay around $75 for a red and coyote. Less for the grays.
I for one would like to see this happen that way maybe they can't take it away like they try to do with everything else dog related.

I've seen a gray fox is Texas climb an oak tree after a squirrel. I didn't know they could climb like that.

I have a friend who runs fix dogs and they have a large pen on a hunting club that is stocked with fox and coyotes. The wildlife and fisheries actually comes by every now and then and inspects the pen and checks on the health of the foxes and coyote because the owners have to have permits for each one in the pen that was bought .

You'd think that but the coyotes get caught and killed pretty regularly. Some dog owners want their dogs to catch and fight the coyote. If I owned a pen and was spending $75-$100 dollars per coyote, there would be no catching and killing.

LDWF regulates the "legal" pens in LA. Some are illegal and don't follow regs by having permits, etc. I think they have to have X amount of places for game to hide based on acreage and amount of game in the pen.

By the way, fox will climb trees! Pen owners routinely ride their fence looking for leaning trees that will allow a fox to escape.
