Moscow shops selling cat fur coats?

January 16th, 2012 - 11:42 pm ICT by IANS  

Moscow, Jan 16 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Moscow police are checking retail outlets following reports that some of them were selling Chinese fur coats made of domestic cat skins.

An animal protection group sent a formal complaint to police that the the All-Russia Exhibition Centre outlets had a long record of violations.

An activist said the shop assistants said it was fur from wild cats, not domestic.

“So we sent a petition to the police asking that they do a check and demanded that the import of domestic cat fur from China be banned,” the activist said.
