New Facebook page targets animal sales on
21 October 2010

A new Facebook page entitled "Boycott Animal Section" is aiming to persuade the Wexford-based classified ads website to install a pre-moderated system for animal ads.

The creators of the page say they "hope to bring to light the scandalous advertisements for animals on the site".

One of the offensive Donedeal ads highlighted on the page is for a lurcher dog which is described as a "good hare bitch" which is "working day and night" and working well with terriers. Also flagged are ads for exotic animals, including ones offering wallabies, a racoon and a zebra for sale.

Over the past year, ICABS has continuously appealed to Donedeal to stop advertising dogs used in blood sports. The company assured us that they would prevent ads for such dogs from appearing on its website. However, ads for dogs used in hunting, baiting, digging-out and terrierwork have continued to be displayed.
