MOUNT VERNON, Va. (AP) - Mount Vernon is playing host to a fox hunt demonstration, but officials at the historic home of George Washington say no foxes will be hurt during the simulated hunt.

The demonstration is scheduled for Saturday and is free with admission.

The estate says no foxes will be involved in the chase. Instead, a bag containing animal scent will be taken on a course around the field, and the hounds involved in the hunt will pick up that scent.
