Priest blesses Pennsylvania fox hunt

The Coal Valley Hunt opened Saturday in traditional style with the hunt blessing, performed by Fr. Robert McElwee of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church at Frontenac. McElwee invoked God's blessing on the horses, hounds and humans, and presented each rider with a medal of St. Hubert, the patron saint of foxhunting.

(Incidentally, they hunt coyotes, not foxes at Pennsylvania fox hunts.)
