Spinning Pet Fur

During one of our Chat sessions, someone asked if it was illegal to spin pet hair in New Jersey. It seems that there could be some truth to this.

Office of the Governor: News Release - 2000
The Governor of New Jersey signed Bill S-1815 that prohibits the sale of dog or cat fur and products made from it.

Bill No.S-1815
Bill S1815, approved on January 4, 2000, by Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey.

"Be It Enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:

1. (New section) 1[a. No person may sell or barter or offer] Any person who sells, barters, or offers1 for sale or barter, at wholesale or retail, the fur or hair of a 1domestic1 dog or cat or any product made in whole or in part from the fur or hair of a 1domestic1 dog or cat 1[, except that this prohibition] commits a crime of the fourth degree, provided that the person knew or reasonably should have known that the fur or hair was from a domestic dog or cat or that the product was made in whole or in part from the fur or hair of a domestic dog or cat. This section1 shall not apply to the sale or barter 1, or offering for sale or barter,1 of the fur or hair of a 1domestic1 dog or cat cut at a commercial grooming establishment or at a veterinary office or clinic or for scientific research purposes."
