Pamela Paquin built her luxury fur business with a shot of whiskey and a roadkill raccoon.
As founder of Petite Mort Fur, she now sells items including a coyote neck muff ($1,500), a red fox wrap stole ($2,000) and racoon leg warmers ($2,000.)
Her aim is to create a new market for what she calls "ethical fur."
She thought the 1 million animals killed on the road in America were a wasted resource, and she's turned them into a viable business.
See if you can get over your squeamishness for these sleek furs: http://cnnmon.ie/1J1d8Na
