Last month, a bunch of furries draped in their animal costumes reportedly saved a woman from being assaulted and attacked by her boyfriend on the streets of San Jose, California. The anthropomorphic animal enthusiasts were reportedly attending a furry convention and were taking a break for smokes when they rescued a woman being harassed and hit by her partner.
According to the reports, the furries were outside on a purpose when they noticed a blue car, driven by a woman, pull over beside the pavement. They heard the woman scream and call for help as she struggled to get out while a man seated beside was throwing punches at her.
