Hi everyone,<br><br><br><br>
I just received an action alert from PETA about how EBay is refusing to stop the sale of live dogs and cats, and dog fur, on its Chinese web site. Obviously, China isn't known for its humane treatment of animals, so the advertised animals are shown suffering in wire cages, often with no food or water.<br><br><br><br>
PETA has an action alert where you can write to EBay asking them to stop the sale of live companion animals. If you'd like to participate, you can do so from the PETA web site.

They do on the US/UK sites, but apparently not on the chinese site. The Peta article didn't have any actual links, so I went to the chinese ebay site and found there's a whole section: <a href="http://pets.listings.ebay.com.cn/_W0QQfclZ3QQfromZR11QQsacatZ94639QQsocmdZListingItemList" target="_blank">http://pets.listings.ebay.com.cn/_W0...istingItemList</a>

That is not a total ban, that's banning auctions for some people and not others depending on location. Either I was mislead or policies have changed.

Walker, I think you might be right ROFL! How very odd.<br><br><br><br>
Who, really, would buy an animal online? If you are so lazy to do that, you do not deserve an animal.<br><br><br><br>
I'll never forget the first time I met my kittens. Our neighbours work for the RSPCA and were hand rearing 4 kittens who were dumped. I watched them grow, and I became attached to two of them.<br><br><br><br>
I love my cats with all my heart.<br><br><br><br>
I just can't imagine buying them without 'knowing' them! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"><br><br><br><br>
