Yippee Coyote wins Fursuit Fracas 2009
Yippee Coyote, one of the many suits of Californian fursuiter Jimmy Chin, has won the 2009 Fandom's Favorite Fursuit Fracas out of 326 entries. Yippee won with 327 votes to Frisbee's 283 – a lead of 44 votes.
Yippee was a previous Top 16 finalist in the 2007 Fracas, however was beaten in the second round of the 2008 competition to eventual winner Jäger. The Yippee Coyote fursuit has been a regular in the furry fandom since 1996, and Jimmy is considered by many to be one of the best known fursuiters around.
This years Fracas was not without controversy however; during the course of the second round contests, Mr. Dobie (owner of the fursuit Dieter) posted artwork of Dieter apparently raping his opponent Blanko. In response, Ember Komodog withdrew both of his fursuits from the competition and Dieter was disqualified. Their places were filled with fursuits that had previously lost.
