Great news for the anti-fur campaign: Starting this Saturday, it will be illegal to sell fur clothing, including shearling, in West Hollywood. I guess Uggs are out!
Fur is an inherently cruel industry, where wild animals are trapped and killed, and farmed animals are raised in cages, and then gassed or electrocuted. It’s not humane, and it’s not green (the chemicals used in the preservations process and the runoff from farms is very bad for the environment).
And as West Hollywood is proving, fur isn’t necessary either. Let’s keep working on this issue so other cities join the cause too.
