An­jel­ica Hus­ton sup­ports fur sale ban in NYC

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

Ac­tress An­jel­ica Hus­ton is sup­port­ing ef­forts to out­law fur sales in the fash­ion mecca of New York.

Hus­ton said in an opin­ion piece in the Daily News that she used to think fur was a sym­bol of “glam­our and af­flu­ence,” but now she’s ashamed of hav­ing sup­ported the fur trade years ago.

She is back­ing bills in­tro­duced in the New York City Coun­cil and in New York’s state Leg­is­la­ture to ban the sale of fur.

Hus­ton said many con­sumers are unaware of fur’s “hor­ri­fy­ing” sup­ply chain. She said coy­otes whose pelts adorn hoods and col­lars may suf­fer for days in steel traps be­fore they are blud­geoned to death.

Coyote trap­pers say they are help­ing to con­trol the pop­u­la­tion of an an­i­mal that’s of­ten con­sid­ered a nui­sance.
