Furries convene for Anthrocon

More than 5,000 fur-costume devotees are expected at Pittsburgh's convention center from June 14-17 for Anthrocon. They refer to themselves as "furries," though only about 1 in 5 will be cavorting in "fursuits" — full-bodied costumes including otters, foxes, cats and dogs.
