West Hollywood residents, get your fur-trimmed purses while you still can: the West Hollywood City Council has taken the push to ban the sale of fur one step further, and approved a first reading of the ordinance.

The initial proposal to ban fur sales in the city was approved on Tuesday at a city council meeting, after hours of debate. With the first reading approval, which was given today, the council has amended the implementation date to June 30, 2012, according to a statement from the city. They've also decided to look into whether or not vintage stores will be allowed to sell fur clothes.

The next round of debate over the amended ordinance will happen at the West Hollywood City Council meeting on Monday, October 3, 2011 at 6:30 p.m.
