Rhode Island Senate Bill 2539 proposes to ban the sale, trade, and distribution of fur products within the state. An offense would be subject to a $500-$5000 fine per fur product, imprisonment of up to one year, or both. The legislation contains exemptions for used fur products sold in pawn or resale shops, fur products used in a religious ceremony, a product to be converted into leather, cowhide, lambskin, sheepskin, and any pelt used in taxidermy.
