Fur Sale Ban Goes Into Effect, Two Years After Passage

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-09_f7a48ca951.jpgKevork Djansezian/Getty Images (WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif.) -- Two years after the West Hollywood, Calif., city council voted unanimously to ban the sale of all fur products, the ordinance has finally gone into effect. The battle over the ordinance, which makes it a misdemeanor to sell any fur apparel, pitted those who see the city as a capitol of fashion against those who wanted to enhance its image as an animal-cruelty-free zone.

The ban applies to anything made to be worn, including shoes, hats and gloves. It does not apply to fur products such as furniture and blankets, or to leather.

Any merchant found violating the ban three times in a year could face a misdemeanor charge.

West Hollywood, which is in Los Angeles County, is known for groundbreaking legislation. In 2003, it became the first U.S. city to ban declawing cats. West Hollywood has also banned the sale of dogs and cats within city limits, as well as the testing of cosmetics on animals.
