Furor Over Furs was designed to provide a true account of the fur industry by removing bias and emotion that can often cloud fact. To obtain this information, literature reviews, surveys and interviews were all implemented. We examined all sides of the fur industry, and then reported the information so that a fair opinion could be drawn from our research. Problems arose from the lack of willing communication from members of the fur industry. We conclude that animal rights groups have overstated their bounds, largely unopposed by an industry which, in general, treats its animals humanely.
