There is cause for celebration! Last night, the West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously to ban the sale of fur. This makes West Hollywood the first city in the world to refuse to support caging or trapping animals or electrocuting, gassing, bludgeoning, or hanging them and then ripping their skin off, sometimes while they are still conscious.

Fur Free West Hollywood campaign organizer Shannon Keith remarked: “West Hollywood’s ordinance banning the sale of fur is a historic step for the rest of the world, as it is the first city in the United States to pass such an ordinance. Cities like West Hollywood and communities all around the country are recognizing that the fur trade is barbaric, cruel and not fashionable.”

Here’s hoping that more cities follow WeHo’s lead!

    Yay!! This is why I love my city. WeHo was also the first in the nation to ban the declawing of cats. The sale of dogs and cats is not allowed within the city limits, nor is the sale of firearms. In the city’s laws, pets are referred to as “companions” and owners as “guardians.” There are 1,000 dogs per square mile here (that’s 1 dog per 17 people!). We are a very peaceful and animal-loving people. : )
