Furries reality show casting: “the freakier, the better”

A casting call for furries “both sexual and non-sexual in nature” and “the freakier the better” has been distributed to the furry community.

There are no details about the U.S.-based show, which is apparently called Furries. Furry News Network posted the casting call, which asks for a one-minute video of the person in costume.

The site notes that “some Furries have found themselves un-welcomed and shunned, if not completely banned from some furry events and websites for participating in a reality TV show,” so it warns that people “consider carefully how you will appear to the Furry Fandom, and the rest of your friends as well as the world if you choose to pursue this.”
