Pitt was also lethally shot with a rare, powerful pistol. Nick investigates the fatal shooting of a man, left in an icy meat-locker, while security guard Petey was cuing up for burgers, and finds the case revolves around stolen ice-cream just past expiration date.

At one point in the episode, Catherine makes a comment about being the victim of one of "gonzo journalist" Hunter S. Thompson's LSD flashbacks. The title of the episode, "Fur And Loathing" is a play on words on the title of one of Thompson's books, "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas." See more »

[Three "furs" are taken to the CSI team]
Bud Simmons: Hello, this is racial profiling?
C.S.I. Night Shift Assistant Supervisor Catherine Willows: Huh, we're gonna need samples of your... fur.
C.S.I. Night Shift Supervisor Dr. Gil Grissom: We'll also need to talk to you without your masks on.
[Two furs take their mask of]
Bud Simmons: I don't.
C.S.I. Night Shift Assistant Supervisor Catherine Willows: You have a problem with that?
Bud Simmons: You wouldn't ask a human lady to take her make-up off. If you want to talk to me, this is the "me" you're gonna talk to.

Wrong portrayal of furries and awful acting.
4 October 2017 | by sansmewtonSee all my reviews

Cheap looking, poorly acted, annoying, and insulting. Every single fursuit looks cheap and ugly, the idea was so bad they couldn't even hire people with real fursuits. The plot is irritating and predictable, it disrespects an entire group of people, and makes false scientific claims and accusations. The visuals of this work are also disgusting. This is an insult, to furries and everyone else alike. I do NOT recommend this episode, nor do I recommend any of them.
