Instead of fighting fire with fire, a brandjacking website is trying to delegitimize the anti-immigrant group Wolves of Odin by fighting it with furries.

Rather than serving as a landing page for the group, the site is plastered with risque art connected to furry culture — a community of animal enthusiasts that anthropomorphizes and dresses up as critters.

Brady Grumpelt, the Edmonton man behind the site, said he paid a web-savvy friend to register a domain with the group's name and design it, which, according to the Canadian Internet Registration Authority, was created on Saturday.
