Los Angeles has become the largest US city to ban fur sales following a unanimous vote from its city council. The unanimous decision prohibits the sale and manufacturing of products made either fully or partly with fur. And it also includes apparel, accessories, and footwear. The ban does not include leather or lambskin.
Following the first vote, the decision must pass the second ballot and if it does, will become law two years following the date. Councilmember Bob Blumenfeld, who introduced the bill, released a statement explaining,
“there’s no excuse for being complicit in this inhumane and unnecessary trade,” before going on: “With this vote, we are telling the world that Angelenos care about animal welfare … We will continue to be a leader in animal welfare efforts and must work with other cities and states until this vile practice is ended across our nation.”
