 The Fur and Leather Centre: Nothing Like It

Fur is a beautiful thing to the eyes,” The Fur and Leather Centre owner John Hanlon says. “It’s not like most flat textiles. Fur has dimension. It is warm, like nothing else you put on. It has this feel on your skin. One of the things you have to prepare for when wearing fur is that people will want to come and touch you.

Weekly Round Up

Fur Wraps the Hill (FWTH) Board Meets, The new name of the organization will be Fur Industries of North America (FINA), Montana's Trapping ban Initiative is rejected by voters,

Political front: The North American fur industry’s political arm, Fur Wraps the Hill (FWTH), comprised of American Legend Cooperative, Fur Council of Canada, Fur Commission USA, Fur Harvesters Auction Inc., Fur Information Council of America, International Fur Federation, North American Fur Auctions and the National Trappers Association, decided at their recent Board meeting that a new name change was in order to solidify their representation with U.S. and international regulatory and legislative bodies.

The new name of the organization will be Fur Industries of North America (FINA). While the name may have changed, the organization’s dual mandate of building a strong political base of support and protecting North American fur interests will not. FINA currently is working on reducing foreign import duties, particularly in China; ensuring fair implementation of CITES requirements on certain products; preventing legislative bans on certain trapping devices; opposing burdensome governmental regulations on waters of the U.S. that will adversely impact U.S. mink farmers; and challenging various state and local legislative efforts to harm the industry. FINA also ensures that the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act survives legislative and judicial challenges, and is applied aggressively by federal prosecutors.

Montana's Trapping ban Initiative is rejected by voters,
With close to 80 percent of precincts reporting, I-177, the animal trapping initiative is failing with 293,567 votes against to 170,081. I-177 would have prohibited people from using animal traps and snares on state public lands. It would not have impacted trapping on private land.
