That is a lure made out of plastic tape?

That's a more interesting plastic lure than just the usual white trash bag! I once stupidly wondered why they didn't use a real fox or coyote or rabbit or other type pelt--that would certainly make a MUCH more interesting lure for the dogs! But, I was thinking in canine terms, NOT in a hyper-humane-no animals-were-harmed-for-this-activity sort-of way. And I am not about to admit I stupidly blurted this to a (unknown to me) bystanding humaniac at a lure coursing event! Not realizing, of course(pun not intended) this was the WHOLE POINT of "lure" coursing to most participating! I know better now than to voice such an opinion at such an event......(but dogs would still prefer a real animal hide to chase and maul!)....L.B.
