Why anyone would list an animal on the American nightmare -- Craig's list -- is beyond comprehension. HELLO. People have been fleeced, killed -- animals killed and abused. I have done undercover camera work at reptile shows because of numerous reports people were selling kittens and pups there as food for the reptiles. The times we went there were three such sellers who insisted they were there to find good homes for the animals -- right. We advised them of the law and the penalties here in IL and they left. i.e., This selling small animals as reptile food is a very real thing and what better outlet than the death list.

I am normally skeptical about these kinds of warnings but I have been involved in exposing these people and know such horrors do exist.


PLEASE SHARE AND SPREAD THE WORD< I WARN PEOPLE REPEATEDLY ABOUT PUTTING FREE ANIMALS TO A GOOD HOME ON CRAIGSLIST!!

Maybe someone needs to send this to all Craigslist posts. Subject: ALERT: PEOPLE
FEEDING KITTENS/PUPS ETC TO REPTILES, ADOPTION FEES DON'T STOP THEM SOUND THE ALARM: PEOPLE GETTING KITTENS PUPPIES RABBITS ETC AS FOOD FOR PYTHONS AND LARGE PET MONITOR LIZARDS
--EVEN ADOPTION FEES OF 15-20 DOLLARS NOT ENOUGH TO STOP THIS (because they are willing to pay that for rabbits inpet stores.). Obviously Craigslist animals and "free to good home" animals
are highly vulnerable.

FROM Tracy Blackwood This is a shared post from Morgan County Cafe, please
read....

Please Be Aware! I work at the local pet store and last week I spoke with a
guy who came in to buy a rat. He has a 4-foot ball python, which he pays $10
per live rat to feed his snake every few weeks. He asked me (dead serious)
if we'd give him a price break on kittens, or call if we got too many
(presumably because kittens are a bit bigger than a rat and more readily
available). Of course I told him absolutely not. Then he went on to tell me
all about how he'd been cruising Craigslist ads for free to good home
kittens, but (by sheer chance alone) the people either never got back to him
or no longer had any available. He continues to look for free kittens.

There's another customer who has a monitor (large meat eating lizard) that
boasts regularly to other customers and employees that their lizard prefers
pets over feeders, and laughs, telling people they get free to good home and
cheap rehoming fee pets all the time (hamsters, birds, kittens, etc) off of
craigslist, out of the paper, and from ads they find on post-boards in
grocery stores and what-not. They pose as nice people but your pet becomes
food. Adoption fees of $15 do not deter them! Remember, they're paying $10
for a rat, so $15 for something bigger (bunnies, kittens, etc) is nothing to
them. And for the monitor family, they get a kick out of it - so they are
happy to pay more just to watch their lizard kill your pet. Please be
careful when re-homing your pets... that old "they become snake food" saying
is true!
