The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to move ahead with a ban on the sale of fur clothing and accessories within city limits.
The proposed ordinance would make Los Angeles the largest city in the United States to ban the sale of fur. It would also represent one of the most significant efforts to restrict fur sales anywhere in the world.
By voting no to fur, the City of Angels is following in the footsteps of other California cities, such as West Hollywood and San Francisco, that have passed their own no-fur ordinances in recent years.
The 12-0 vote directs the city attorney’s office to draft an ordinance outlining the ban, which would then require a final vote by the council. The ban would go into effect two years after final approval.
