Hey, wondering where we went? No worries, we are just changing format and conducting some testing before we flip the switch. For now, you can get all of our new stuff by clicking here.. We aren't quite ready to switch quite yet, but the end result will be a continuous flow of dark and often day-wrecking content from our regular authors as well as other members. It's a work in progress and we are still working on some design and function stuff, but the updated content is now coming through.

FurryCHICAGO, IL – A Hyatt hotel hosting the Midwest Furfest Convention had to be evacuated early Sunday after an “intentional” chlorine gas incident sent 19 people to the hospital.

According to Furfest organizers, at around 12:45 AM on Sunday, the Hyatt Regency O’Hare received a complaint of a chemical odor spreading across the ninth floor.

First responders would find powdered chlorine in a ninth floor stairwell and the manner in which the gas was dispersed “suggests an intentional act,” according to police.

The entire hotel had to be evacuated, which included a large number of furries standing outside in their costumes. Because the incident was being investigated as a criminal act, it was several hours before hotel guests were allowed back into their rooms.

According to Rosemont Public Safety, nineteen people were transported to local hospitals suffering from nausea and dizziness. Some of these people have already been treated and released.

The convention would go on as scheduled, including CompuFur: A Furry Hackathon, the two hour Fursuit Dance Competition and Improv Puppet Do’s and Dont’s.

After reading some comments attached to various news articles, I was surprised to learn that some people had know idea what a furry was.  Ask a furry what it means to be a furry, and I’m sure you’ll get a variety of different answers, so check out WikiFur for their take on what it means to be a furry, or have a better time reading Encyclopedia Dramatica’s.

Kudos to the following news anchor for not losing her shit, even after having to talk following the video report.
