Melania Trump might get away with plagiarizing Michelle Obama's speech, but don't try to pull such a stunt in school or college!
Some Syrian refugees were placed in the same hotel as a Furry convention for temporary housing after arriving in Canada. Syrian kids and furries alike made the best of what is undoubtedly a weird situation. The organizers of VancouFur made sure to alert the attendees to be extra kind to the newcomers and it looks like they did just that.
Thousands of people in animal costumes were forced to evacuate a hotel in Chicago on Sunday at an annual furry convention, after chlorine gas was discovered in the building.
Nineteen people were sent to the hospital with nausea and dizziness, and authorities believe that the crime was intentional based on the way in which the gas was released.
Midwest FurFest, as the event is dubbed, is an annual convention "to celebrate furry fandom, that is, art, literature, and performance based around anthropomorphic animals."
And despite the scare, the FurFest will go on as planned this week - according to a statement on the convention's site - because under all that fur, these folks have some pretty thick skin.
