West Hollywood moves to finalize a ban on selling fur apparel products in stores
By The Associated Press

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) ' The city of West Hollywood has voted to approve a local ordinance that's believed to be the country's first ban on the sale of fur apparel products.

Fur Free West Hollywood spokesman Scott Samson says Monday night's 3-1 City Council vote to approve the ordinance was the last step in banning sales of clothing made from the skin or pelt of animals with hair, wool or fur.

West Hollywood has long been known for its animal-friendly laws. It bans declawing of cats, and pets are formally recognized as "companions" while their owners are "guardians."



Samson says local businesses have been consulted in the process of writing the fur ban law.
