I think I may be sick.. is this even legal?

There is a person selling PIT BULL BONES on ETSY. I have never used the site and I never will. I think I am going to go get sick now...

OK wow...I've browsed the site, now I'm happy I haven't bought anything. This needs to be brought to someone's attention who runs the site if it hasn't already been.

Yes we need to make ETSY aware, I don't use the site either, but get their emails..a lot of wedding blogs suggest it and such. But I have no idea why you would need those unless you were a surgeon and doing some sort of replacement, but even then I think they look dried out..ewww..sick..sick!!

For the most part this is a good site. I've used it in the past. I just went out and Alerted Etsy of the questionable nature of the seller's claim. How does the seller know they are pit bull bones (which btw the way I'm completely grossed out about all bones)? In order to know for sure, there might be animal cruelty involved.

Etsy has standards, they won't want to be involved in anything associated with animal cruelty. They WILL bar sellers with enough complaints. They need to be made aware.

That's really weird and really wrong if it's real. Ugh.

Ok so one of my friends left the seller a message and they said they found the dog in the dessert and they cleaned the bones off and there they are..WEIRD! I wrote Etsy a letter of my disgust as well!!

That is totally sick, wrong and should absolutely be illegal.

Ok so some of my friends have been going back and forth with the seller who is absolutely mean and said she has sold 100's in the past 2 months!

People will do anything for money. And if she's sold hundreds I'd really like to know where these dogs came from! And who is buying them?

And also..I did a little looking at what else she is selling, and she has bones of other animals, including a great dane skull, raccoon, sheep...I'm really wondering how she just happens to "find" hundreds of items like this to sell. She even has some bones ground up and put into viles to sell... I'm all for "To each their own" but this smorgasbord of random animals bone selling rubs me the wrong way.

I got into it with her today! I gave it my best shot trying to tell her why this wasn't ok and she's pretty irrational.

She said she didn't care how they died she was just making a living.

She's really crazy.

I stumbled across that sight a couple of weeks ago while searching for Pit Bull coats. I was totally shocked and couldn't imagine who would want to buy (or sell) such a thing! I'm pretty sure this kind of thing isn't allowed on Ebay so why would Etsy allow it?
