Looters ransacked a Manhattan furrier during the George Floyd protests this week, stealing about $750,000 in pelts from the family-owned store, police said.

Surveillance footage shows people pouring into a shuttered Madison Avenue Furs & Henry Cowit store after cops say they broke down the door to the 27th Street retailer around 11:30 p.m. Monday.

The first entrants hopped over the store’s security vestibule and into the darkened store, footage shows, before they flicked on the lights and let a dozen others in through the front door.

Together, the group of 15 to 20 stole about $750,000 in furs, according to the NYPD.

Cops are still searching for the alleged burglars.
