Well this is a start, but they still allow fur sales.

Yes, Andrea...and they allow live animal sales in China....and we all know what happens to those animals there, don't we??? Also, they permit the sale of dog and cat fur items in the US even though it is banned.

Good for them. Though ebay should tell them who buys the ivory and sells the ivory so the activist can do something. Just an idea. This is a start, but don't count on them wanting stop furs and animal products soon, since they will lose profits and no business likes that.

They should have never allowed it to begin with; they know it is against International Law, all they care about is money just like the peeps that sell illegal stuff on eBay and there is plenty of it.
