West Hollywood Bans Fur!

Want to hear some excellent news on the animal rights frontlines? West Hollywood has banned the sale of fur, which is a very smart way to stop the exploitation and cruelty to non-human animals. Notice that you can still wear fur, if you somehow own it and don’t want to waste it—and that if you hunt and make your own fur, whether out of necessity or (what I consider to be a very dark) hobby, that’s still apparently legal, too. You just can’t buy or sell it in the area—which means no support to factory fur farms that kill animals on a massive scale.
