    Default Grey Squirrels for sale on Craigslist

    Hey guys - I listed this on the Grey squirrel forum and it was suggested to list it here as well.

    My husband just found a listing on Craigslist for:

    2 four month old squirrels that are hand raised & fed, never caged, children/pet friendly . Have 1 Male & 1 Female price is negotiable please contact at xxx-xxx-xxxx. The link is http://tampa.craigslist.org/psc/bar/2000323889.html

    Can they do this? Is it legal or illegal to sell wildlife? Can anything be done? Poor babies.

    Yes it is illegal to sell grey squirrels in Florida. It is not illegal to own a pet grey squirrel but they are illegal to sell and illegal to "take" from the wild.

    Interesting... I still have the ad. It might be that it is in my browsers cache, still. I will save it and sent it in pm.

    It seems that I can't send attachments by PM. I will attach the two pics that was included with the ad here.

    oh K, do you have the phone number? that's all I need to get started finding them!
    *sigh* I hate knowing they can be bought by anyone...my heart races not knowing what they will fall into if bought by kids or reptile owners or pitbull lovers or or or...
    I just want to help them back to the trees...
    my tummy gets so twisted with worry...really.
    NOT THAT I NEED MORE SQS, coz I have plenty ,
    but yet I just need to know they are safe and will have a chance at being healthy sqs.
    fingers crossed!

    after the ad is flagged, I guess you can no longer respond either...
    I emailed them a wake up letter, but I got a 'undeliverable mail' prompt...
    so I will call this AM!

    Cute little things too!. I hope you land this deal J
    BTW...I don't think his name is Richard Hunter.
    That's the name of the poster artist on the picture in the background of the picture ?
    Just making sure you don't call asking for Richard Hunter!
    That would be ...awkward

    Don't be so formal, girls - I bet Mr. Hunter wouldn't mind being called by his nickname...

    If they want money, Jackie, buy them - your peeps will help, you know that - heck, I'm almost to the catfood-eating point and I will send a few $$.

    They are little cuties with nice, shiny coats. They must have gotten good care somewhere. Hopefully they will see reason and at least let them go for a reasonable price if they are going to a safe place.

    i have purchased sqs before on craigslist...
    truth is...if you try and call a rehabber around here, you get a message usually, saying they are fulll...so what does a good family do that has gotten them to the release stage/age???

    yep there are some evil stealers/thieves/tree robbers, but there are also peeps that did a great favor and a good job raising them with good intentions...release cages are not cheap, winter is long and rehabbers are few and far between..mostly full by this time of the year.
    and then you have to look at the situation as it is to the family or person that raised them...they only want the best for them i am sure ...so they probably think that attaching a price tag will weed out the meanies!
    so not all 'sellers' are evil...
    the last three i bought were raised really well by a great and loving family... they just were ready for someone to do the release part!
    i bought them all for $30...
    on the other side of the coin...when i bought fidget, she was here for less than an hour and went into gran mals that lasted for an hour and 10 minutes straight...ugh...i paid $150 for her...actually two members on tsb paid for her via paypal! ty girls!
    either way, i need these babies and they need me!
    sowish us luck...
    point being...i doubt these rescuers are evil, just ready to pass them on tosomeone with the right situation nand knowledge...that's where i can help!
    wish us luck and pray they are cheap or free! i am broker than broke..and into my last 8lb bucket of formula! ouch!
    so yes, if they are high dollar sqs i may need help$$$...ty!
    tinfoil freddie can i have some milk money please!!!!
