I am currently doing a story on this issue and visited a fox pen in Hawthorne, FL on Saturday.  They are expecting hundreds of hunting club members to participate in this event.  I am 90% sure I will be there covering this for our TV station, come out if you want to be heard.

Subject: [AnimalActivistsCF] New Meetup: Help foxes and coyotes in FL on June 23

Announcing a new Meetup for Animal Activists of Central Florida!

What: Help foxes and coyotes in FL on June 23

When: Wednesday, June 23,[masked]:30 AM

Where:
Orlando Marriott, Lake Mary
1501 International Pkwy
Lake Mary, FL 32746
[masked]

Animal Activists of Central Florida will be joining animal activists from around the state of Florida to speak up for foxes and coyotes.
From the HSUS FL chapter: "At this meeting, Commissioners will decide whether to regulate or prohibit fox and coyote penning���a cruel activity in which trapped foxes and coyotes are released inside fenced enclosures to be chased by packs of dogs, who often kill or maim the captive animals.

People who participate in fox and coyote penning have attended past meetings in large numbers, which makes it appear that more people support this activity than the few who actually do.

We need animal advocates to attend this meeting and testify--however briefly--in support of a complete, immediate ban on this inhumane practice, and show the state wildlife agency that the vast majority of Floridians strongly oppose such animal baiting inside fenced enclosures.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:
1) Call the FWC at (850)[masked] and e-mail: [address removed] and ask for an end cruel fox and coyote pens.

2) Attend the June 23 FWC meeting in Lake Mary at the Lake Mary Orlando Marriot 1501 International Parkway, Lake Mary, FL 32746 and respectfully ask Commissioners to prohibit this practice immediately.
3) Write a letter to the editor of your local paper calling for state policymakers to ban this egregious, inhumane activity.
4) Urge others to write letters to the editor and take action as well.
Additional information and talking points can be found below and in the attached fact sheet. Thank you for your compassion and action for animals."
