New York might become the third American city to ban the sale of fur, after San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Lawmakers are considering a measure which should put a ban on all new fur products.

The owners of companies which make fur clothing say that a ban on the sale of fur could leave thousands jobless. On the other hand, animal rights activists emphasize the inhumane aspect of wearing fur.

– Cruelty should not be confused with economic development. Fur relies on violence to innocent animals – stated Linda Rosenthal of the New York State Assembly.
