No Fur in SF

City bans the sale of fur

Animal welfare supporters, you can cheer hard over this one! San Francisco recently banned the sale of fur in the city, prohibiting people from profitting off the sale of dead animal skin. It's always baffled my mind as to why people might want to wear fur today. It's not like they are depending on it for survival anymore.

It's definitely not the first city to pass this law in California. On the contrary, many cities have similar bans. But it's a great step toward a cruelty-free city where most residents care about animal welfare. The vote itself was unanimous.

Have you read about any other animal welfare laws passing this week? Share them in the chat.
