Queens company selling dog fur products
From CBS 2:
The Humane Society is sounding the alarm on what it said is a highly disturbing investigation involving dogs.
The organization found that dog fur is being used in products ordered online, although it’s illegal, and is worried that the cruelty behind the products may be more widespread than anyone knows.
Patrick Kwan of The Humane Society led a two-year investigation into the sale of dog fur. Acting on a tip, the society ordered items online from a Queens company.
Lab analysis confirmed that the fur came from a dog, even though dog-fur use has been outlawed since 2000.
