City staff must refine the ordinance to include the date of implementation and the amount of civil penalties before it can receive final approval, which could come in two weeks. The ban — the first of its kind in the nation — would prohibit the sales of fur clothing but leather goods, furniture, and fur decorated accessories are okay. Animals rights advocates celebrated, calling the fur ban a landmark victory. "It's just the beginning of what's to come in the humane treatment of animals and how we view fashion," said Ellen Leventhal of Fur Free West Hollywood. even though I don't wear fur or like killing animals for their fur, I think this is a bit over reaching of government into peoples rights to choose.
