Clothing Containing Dog or Cat Fur

12 of 13

Appalling
as it may be, some corner-cutting clothing makers around the world still use cats
and dogs as a source of animal fur. Sensitive to international tastes and laws,
they often mislabel their products to mislead consumers. Caveat emptor if
you’re buying fur overseas, particularly in China and Russia, lest you end
up with Chihuahua—not chinchilla. If you’re caught bringing it into the
country, you’ll lose the coat as surely as its original owner did—and be fined
at least $3,000.
