Slideshow: Furries Converge on the Boise Hotel and Convention Center

Here is an article from March 11, in the Boise Weekly. It concerns last weekend's FurIdahho convention.

Article text:

Hundreds of furries converged on the Boise Hotel and Convention Center March 8-10 for the 2013 FurIdaho: Furries In Time and Space Convention.

Furries share an affinity for fictional anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities. Don’t get it? It’s like an anime convention or Comic-Con, but instead of Sailor Moons and Green Lanterns, attendees are decked out in furry, full-body animal costumes.

The event included an art show, a dealer’s den and a long list of workshops, panels and activities like a parade and the Furry Olympics.

(The article includes a slideshow of photographs from the event.)

Coming to a large screen hopefully near you (or already on a small screen digital download).

From wiki:
The ABCs of Death is a 2012 American anthology horror film produced by Ant Timpson and Tim League. It contains 26 different shorts, each by different directors spanning fifteen countries. The film is divided into 26 individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. The varieties of death range from accidents to murders.

This short shows animals with human bodies. A male dog is at a strip club and is aroused by a female fox. As she removes her clothing, a Nazi symbol is revealed on her arm. A small toy-like tank drives up to him and produces a metal fist that punches him between his legs. A series of contraptions emerge and restrain him. She laughs while he is being electrocuted and hung over spikes in water to die. A locket around his neck opens and reveals encouraging words. The words echo in his head: "Keep calm, my son, carry on." He manages to escape his restraints and defeat the fox. He pushes her into the spikes in the water. Her skin melts and her body explodes.
