Furry Convention Hit With Intentional Chlorine Gas Leak

A Chicago area Hyatt Hotel had to be evacuated in the middle of the night this weekend when an intentional leak of chlorine gas on the ninth floor made 19 people sick as it spread throughout the building. This happened during the Midwest FurFest convention with dozens of Furries partying, nuzzling and dragging their butts across the carpet.  

For those not in the know; Furries aren’t a popular, new must-have Christmas toy this year, but rather grown adults who like to dress up in animal mascot costumes - and fuck each other. Yeah- yeah- Furry sympathizers will say that Furry Fandom isn’t all about the sex- but come on; why else would you put on those hot… sexy.. seductive wolf costumes? I mean damn.

If this was a terrorist attack, hey ISIS I think we found something we can agree on.

Around 1AM Saturday morning hotel guests and Furries were escorted out of the Hyatt; Furries remained warm in their costumes outside on the cold December night while some were kept warm at the convention center across the street as police and hazardous material technicians cleared the odor from the building.  Perhaps one of the giant Zebra men just had a little too much nacho dip at the Furry party?

Chlorine probably isn't the worst smell in those costumes.

Can you imagine being doctors in the emergency room when a six foot tall sexy rabbit is wheeled in? They can give them some oxygen, some aspirin and a few food pellets and they should be back to their zoo themed rave in no time.

Someone got their fetish convention mixed up.

The culprit for the chlorine attack is not yet known, but I would check out the Fox. Not to stereotype here but, come on, I think we all know the Fox did it. Although the police may have their work cut out for them trying to figure out who at the Furry convention is the unstable sociopath that would do something this crazy.

I’d watch a Furry horror movie, wouldn’t you?

I called this out over a year ago that a Furry Convention is a “great place” for a lunatic to start murdering people. In my horror film concept Furries, a member of the Furry Fandom community skins other Furries alive and sews them to the insides of their furry costumes!

I'd go "ironically."

Midwest FurFest 2014 event organizers said in a statement Sunday morning;

“As we wake up today we want to continue to provide the best possible convention that we can, despite the trying circumstances. We ask you to continue to be patient, and remember that the volunteers who make Midwest FurFest happen intend to give 110% to make sure that the fun, friendship, and good times of Midwest FurFest 2014 overshadow last night’s unfortunate incident.”

If "it" moves you're a Furry.

It could have been worse; do you know how hard it is to get blood out of your fur costume? Just saying.
