Demonstrators gather outside fur store on busy shopping day

Ten demonstrators assembled outside a Main Street fur seller on Friday, Nov. 23, the Park City Police Department says, continuing what has been a once-in-a-while gathering by the demonstrators.

According to the Police Department, 10 protesters took up positions on the 500 block of Main Street, near a fur store. Public police logs, though, provide little information, and the Police Department censored the public report.

The logs indicate, however, the protesters were loud.

Fur sellers have long attracted animal-rights activists, including during the busy Sundance Film Festival.

The Friday demonstration occurred on the day after Thanksgiving, when big crowds of shoppers were on Main Street.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week include:
