Robert Pitt was run over by a truck which hit a car. Pitt was wearing his sophisticated 'Rocky Raccoon' costume, for the PET convention in Vegas, so Grimssom goes there. 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.

Did You Know?


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 »


The lining of the costume (known as a fursuit) is described as latex. Fursuits are very warm costumes, and latex (which traps heat) would make it worse. For this reason, latex would not be used in a real fursuit, particularly in Nevada. See more »


Security guard: Look, if my boss finds out I'm leaving every night to get my burger, I'm toast.
Detective Vega: You keep lying to us, you're gonna be toast in a jumpsuit.

As a furry myself, I can 100% guarantee that this is completely false.

It makes me sick to think that this serves as a basis for people's opinions on us. They probably didn't do any sort of research before writing this episode. We are being depicted as a sex-crazed cult, when all we are is a group of people who think cartoon animals are cool. It's not that hard to understand.
