Tell Ebay To Stop Selling Live Animals
My friend Felissa Elfenbein at Two Little Cavaliers recently posted about the eBay policy for selling live animals in their classified section. Go to eBay and see for yourself. Lots and lots of dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals are available over the Internet, including this little guy.
Buyers have no way to see these animals prior to purchasing them or to know the conditions in which they were raised. Likewise, there is no way to know who is purchasing the animal. Are they being used as bait animals, sold to labs or used as snake food? It's another back door for unscrupulous individuals to make money with no concern to the health or well-being of the animal!
Please let eBay know that you do not support their policy for selling live animals in their classified section. Write a blog post and link it to the list at Two Little Cavaliers, then tweet it or post it to your facebook profile. Let's show eBay how much we care about animals!
