In a bold move this past fall (which became official just about a month ago), the city of West Hollywood, CA has enacted a ban on the sale of fur clothing. Wedged between Beverly Hills and Hollywood, West Hollywood is now the first city in the U.S. to publicly take a stand for animal rights by putting a law into place.

The ban is expected to take effect in September 2013 and, according to Yahoo! News, nearly half of the city’s 200 retailers will be affected. The ordinance sites that any garment made “in whole or part from the pelt or skin of an animal with its hair, wool or fur” will not allowed to be sold and examples of furs include “fox, mink, rabbit, bear, seal and chinchilla.” There is an exemption for vintage pieces and, additionally, wool sheared from sheep, leather goods and furniture.

Apparently this isn’t the first time that West Hollywood has stepped up to make animal rights a priority. In 2010 they banned the sale of dogs and cats from pet stores and also made the news for not agreeing with the declawing of pet cats.
