Colorado furry convention Rocky Mountain Fur Con has been canceled. Funds collected in advance of this August's event are to be spent on existing liabilities, and refunding attendees and dealers where possible; any remainder will go to the convention charity.
While their official statement cites rising security costs, the closure follows the controversial issues surrounding CEO Kendal Emery (Kahuki Liaru), and the "Furry Raiders" group. It has also been discovered by Flayrah that the convention's parent company's Federal tax-exempt status, obtained in 2009, had lapsed, and it had not filed taxes for a period of seven years, while still claiming to be a registered 501(c) non-profit. In this investigative report we can identify the issues that have contributed to the end of Denver's furry convention.
Apparently these "furry raiders" are a group of furries headed by some guy with the nickname foxler (a play on fox and hitler). He's known for wearing the group's arm band for their club (intentionally red with the paw logo in a circle, styled similar to nazi arm bands), being racist, and other already-out-of-the-ordinary things. Also apparently there's an "AltFurry" hashtag on twitter that foxler has used (its an equivalent to Alt-right if you did not make the connection). The final nail in the coffin is his 1993 conviction for "Criminal Sexual Contact with a Minor".
Should I have left out any other important details...well...I really didn't want to research much more about it.
Here's a picture from his twitter:
