Is this Fur-real?



Pittsburgh...get your DVR's ready!! +Discovery TV Channel will debut a new, groundbreaking series filmed in Pittsburgh called Furry Week. This extraordinary television event will piggy back  Discovery Channel's annual ratings extravaganza, Shark Week, July 9-11.

Humans have long harbored both fear and curiosity towards the Furries because so little is known about these creatures and their behavior.

Conservationists hope that this will be a platform to educate the public and change the perception of the Furries worldwide.
