Several people have been blogging about how eBay has weaseled out of its promise not to sell puppies and kittens and other live animals online by shutting down its auctions but letting the abhorrent practice in through the back door of its classified ads. Here’s a sampling of the posts:
- Felissa Hadas at Two Little Cavaliers started the campaign for the mega-online retailer to forgo its bad practices: Telling E-Bay Selling Live Animals Needs to Stop
- Mary Haight at Dancing Dog Blog, one of my favorite bloggers about animal welfare, added to the conversation by providing excellent context to eBay’s evil practices: eBay’s New Outlet for Puppy Mills: Classified Ads
- And Kim Clune of This One Wild Life, another key crusader against inhumane animal practices, provides a film — which I wasn’t able to watch all the way through — about puppy millers who are benefiting from eBay: eBay Classifieds: Stop Live Animal Sales.
If you don’t feel like reading and just trust me — as well you should! — I’ve posted the petition that Change.org created that lets you shout: EBAY, CHANGE YOUR PUPPY-MILL ENABLING WAYS.
