Seriously? This Kenmore, NY Woman Was Trying To Sell This On Craigslist

NYS DEC

This is as random as the lasdy trying to sell positive pregnancy tests downtown a few years ago.

This woman in Kenmore last week was trying to sell an Arctic Fox on Cragislist–Like the wild animals thatlive in Canada, Iceland and Greenland….and the Buffalo Zoo.

It said: Blue Arctic Fox for sale—600 bucks and 8 weeks old.

She claims she bought it in Michigan, probably on the black market of course, but the NYS DEC got a hold of this and a few officers went over to her house and issued her a ticket and an appearance in court.
Just casually selllinnnnng some arctic foxes today. According to WIVB:

DEC Environmental Conservation Officer Mark Mazurkiewicz received a call Aug. 3 regarding the ad on Buffalo’s Craigslist page, advertising the fox pup being sold for $600 in Kenmore.

Mazurkiewicz contacted a permitted wildlife rehabiliation service that operates a sanctuary for foxes and they met with the Kenmore woman offering the fox for sale.

It is illegal to possess, barter, or offer for sale a wild animal as a pet in New York.

The fox pup was seized and taken to the permitted facility where it will be cared for pending a court disposition.
