Fur Trader co-owner, Margie Castella, says the line about being independents may not be exactly true and produced a copy of a what appears to be a Facebook invitation to join the protests, from a PETA email. Margie also says the Fur Trader did not hire or organize the counter protest. She says conflict is not conducive with the spirit of Victorian Christmas.The owners even requested the counter protesters not return this Sunday.
