Default Fox hunting pens debated in legislature?

Saw this on KATC website. What a waste of time. Does either side know what they are talking about?
House debates if La. should commend fox pen hunts

Lawmakers in the House are resisting an effort to have Louisiana declare that "fox pen hunting" is part of the state's folklife heritage and should be preserved. The sport involves fenced-in preserves where hunting dogs are trained to pursue foxes.

Rep. Sherman Mack, a Republican from Livingston, says the sport is part of Louisiana's culture. Opponents of the proposal Monday called it a "blood sport" in which a fox is run down by 20 or 30 dogs that attack it until it dies.

Mack says in Louisiana the foxes are chased up a tree and aren't killed. The House voted to include language by Lafayette Rep. Nancy Landry, a Republican, requiring approval by the Louisiana Folklife Commission before the designation is granted. After that, Mack pulled the bill from debate.

That is the point I am trying to make. One side says they run them to death which is not true, and the other side says the fox get away by climbing a tree which is not true. So niether side is making a good argument and the state legislature is going to make an uninformed decision on the out come of this.

Either the greys or reds do climb trees, but I can't remember which. Sure some game is caught, but I can assure you the runners (never saw this as a form of hunting) do their best to get them off & keep the game alive & well. Some game die, but it definitely isn't the goal.

Most pens I've ran in have a fox hole for when the game gets tired. Like a dog house but small enough so that only a fox can fit in and not a hound
