That's so discriminatory. What about the dogs and puppies and kittens that's sold in Gumtree.

So either buying or selling on Gumtree should be completely thankless now

I see dead donkeys left to rot on the side of the road in rural areas. A person could drive around skinning these at 7K a skin and make a handsome profit. You could also skin some of the live ones left to roam the side of the roads causing accidents. Not skin alive of course.

Fiesta I don't know if it's just me but I really don't get your jokes. I mean this one doesn't even make sense. It's not even a pun or anything related. You're just forcing it.

Even something as lame as "fantasstic" would have been better in this case.

I just don't know anymore.

“We call upon other websites to follow this worthy lead and to widen this to include all animals.”

Doesn't make sense to me. Not everyone is a "backyard" breeder and there are plenty advertised in newspapers. It would also prevent people advertising strays and pets they don't want. I would rather have something find a decent home than be abused.

I saw a Namibian newspaper report that the Chinese folk are building a donkey abattoir in the North of our land!
