The General Assembly has approved a measure that prohibits new fenced-in areas where dogs pursue foxes and coyotes. There are 36 of these operations in Virginia, and they can keep operating through the summer of 2054. A handful of rural lawmakers, including Emmett Hanger (pictured) of Augusta County, voted against the legislation.  The bill is now heading to the desk of Governor McAuliffe.
