I will never understand why it always take so much time when something has been voted on and passed to take affect! It passed last year but will only begin next year! This is crazy and it does not make sense! I will only believe that when it will happen for real!

This means until 2013 the are still allowed to sell real fur? Nancy's right; why does it take so much time when it's been voted on and passed to take effect? The fur is home to the animals. It must mean that wolves, coyotes, etc., are 'fair game' until 2013. But at least it WILL take effect and that's what we have to be thankful for! Thank you Brit! I apologize for my above comments!

Since I was a kid, I knew that fur was wrong. I love this story. And there is a bar owner in NYC that bans fur wearers from his establishment. I totally support this!
