Los Angeles Will Ban the Sale of Fur

Protestors in Los Angeles

New York Times / 18 September 2018

Los Angeles is on track to become the largest city in the United States to ban the sale of fur clothing and accessories.

On Tuesday, the City Council voted unanimously for the ban, directing the Los Angeles City Attorney to formulate a policy that would render fur sales illegal. The council expects that the city attorney will return with the requisite language in about a month. The ban will take effect two years from the day it is signed into law.

Council member Bob Blumenfield, who introduced the motion, said: “This is L.A. taking a stand and saying we will no longer be complicit in the inhumane and vile fur trade that’s been going on for years.”
