The Furry Movement Helps Germans Shed Their Human Worries

The Furry movement is an interesting phenomenon getting increasing popular in Germany. At conventions, hybrid creatures that look like a cross between humans and animals walk around, thanks to a DIY animal costume craze. The Furries are like intelligent animals walking on two legs; they have a human body but a tail, a coat and the head of an animal.

One advantage to playing the role of an animal is being able to shed many human problems; this could well be the reason the movement has become so popular in this time of financial crisis.

Furries may seem like a random phenomenon, but the German conventions have actually become so popular, that many applicants are being turned away due to overflow. Stats for Animalized People Trending: Older & Warm
