New Bills in Support of Raccoon Dogs’ Right to Keep Their Fur

A few months ago, I got really, really sick of posting about Chinese raccoon dogs and all the terrible department stores their fur was showing up in. Thankfully, two New York legislators have introduced a bill to ban the sale of raccoon dog fur in the state. “Unfortunately, we can’t outlaw the inhumane treatment of these animals in China, but with the legislation I have introduced in the Assembly, we can at least ensure that New York State plays no part in this deplorable practice,” said Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal. There’s also a bill in front of the House Ways and Means Committee in Washington to do the same thing; that one would also require the labeling of all fur items, including those valued at less than $150 (which are exempt from labeling by current law).

I hope the only time I ever post about raccoon dogs again is to tell you that this bill passed. And when they inevitably show up in Felix’s cute video collection. (Thanks, Pierre, for the tip.)
