Japanese police force is using fake fur coats to target fur traffickers

Japanese police are using fake coats to track down fur traffickers and stop the sale of illegally imported fur, according to police and media reports.

According to media reports, a police department in the city of Takayama has been working on the initiative since November and has started sending out fake fur jackets to officers and others at a local park, where they wear them.

In the past few months, Takayam police have sent out a total of more than 100 fake fur suits to members of the public, including a member of the military, and even some police and fire departments.

The fake fur, which is made from fur that has been imported from Asia, is used to identify the fur traffickers, and police have been instructed to confiscate the fur jackets and seize it.
