Today's New York magazine has a fascinating look at the fur industry—who buys it, who hates it, and who harvests it. Click through for profiles of fur lovers, a Q&A with a PETA strategist, and a conversation with a third-generation New Jersey muskrat trapper who appears to have charmed his interviewer with his "strong shoulders and Boy Scout manners." There's also a slideshow of furs faux and real. [NYMag]
