First Fur-Free City Plans

Organizers announce a campaign to make West Hollywood, Calif. the first fur-free city in the US.

Activist group Fur Free WeHo and city council candidate John D’Amico are working on a campaign to ban the sale of fur products in West Hollywood, Calif. Organizers say they have a good chance of convincing the City Council to pass the initiative, since West Hollywood has a history of animal-welfare protection. The city was declared a “cruelty-free zone for animals” in 1989 after passing a resolution to ban cosmetic testing on animals, and recently also made illegal the declawing of cats and prohibited pet stores from doing business with puppy mills. Should the initiative pass, West Hollywood would be the first fur-free city in the nation.
