DSC_0011COSHOCTON – Last weekend’s UKC Hunting Beagle Nationals brought people from numerous states to Coshocton.

“There are over 400 dogs here this weekend and I believe they said 15 states represented,” said Mastin Albridge.

The hunt was held April 17-19 at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds and Albridge was there with a group from North Carolina.

“I’ve been here before,” he said. “There is good hospitality and plenty of land to run.”

One of the dog’s that came with his group, White River Big John, earned the title of National Show Champion.

“He’s my granddaughter Kristin Bundy’s dog,” said Ronald Bundy. “I’m pretty proud of her.”

“He’s a natural show dog,” Ronald said.

The UKC Hunting Beagle Nationals was hosted by the Coshocton County Beagle Club and sponsored by Nestlé Purina.
