Ind. Senate leader opposes high-fence deer hunting

Indianapolis — The leader of the Indiana Senate says he'll kill an amendment that would allow five fenced deer-hunting preserves around the state to remain open.

Republican Senate President Pro Tem David Long of Fort Wayne said Thursday he intends to halt efforts to legalize what critics have called "canned hunts."

Long told reporters the preserves where hunters pay for a chance to shoot deer confined inside high fences are not "a good idea for Indiana." He says the practice is neither hunting, nor a form of sporting.

The Indianapolis Star and The Journal Gazette report that Long says he'll remove an amendment to a bill allowing the five game preserves to remain open. A House panel approved that measure on Monday.

The five preserves have remained open under a court injunction.
