Seriously? Kenmore, NY Woman Arrested After Trying To Sell This On Craigslist
We were talking on Clay and Company about how using Craigslist is not as popular as it once was because of Facebook debuting 'Facebook Marketplace'. So, it led us to find some of the WEIRDEST things that weird people have tried to sell.
I'm not sure what is stranger: the woman in Buffalo who was selling positive pregnancy tests on Craigslist or this.
This woman in Kenmore a few years back was trying to sell an Arctic Fox on Craigslist--Like the wild animals that live 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.
