We have a prayer request thread but I figured this would be more appropriate for general discussion of this unfortunate accident/terrorist attack. A broken jar of powdered pool chlorine was found in a stairwell, leaking dangerous fumes. The police are investigating with suspicion for it being an intentional attack. No one is dead, and Fackel, who is attending, is okay. Details are still developing.

Oh crap, someone I follow on Tumblr (not a Furry, as far as I know) was there. I'll pass the links on.

A lot of Coloradans are there, haven't heard anything back from most of them (but no news is good news). On the plus side, I've really only seen good things from the internet and the media about this incident.

I heard about this recently, definitely a new low for the furry haters (assuming it was malevolent) praying.

Everyfur I know there is safe and sound, and from following the events on Twitter everything was handled very smoothly and professionally.

This incident was absolutely horrible, but I will admit I laughed at a comment someone made: "Chemical weapons are a violation of the Furry Convention."
