    eBay.com Rejects U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Science

    It has come to our attention that the online auction site eBay has apparently taken it upon itself to enforce its own interpretation of the Endangered Species Act. SCI would like to make you, your friends, chapter members and ALL hunters aware of a policy statement that eBay recently posted in response to a query about auctioning an Idaho governor's wolf tag.

    The following email, in which eBay stated it that considers "all wolves within the U.S. as endangered, regardless of their actual designation," came directly from an eBay.com customer representative.
    ----------------------

    Thank you for writing eBay in regard to listing your charitable item. In general, hunts for non-endangered animal species are permitted on eBay. However, eBay has made the decision to treat all wolves within the U.S. as endangered, regardless of their actual designation. As a result, you will not be able to list your wolf hunt on eBay. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. To find out more about our policy, visit: http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/wildlife.html. It is my pleasure to assist you. Thank you for choosing eBay. Sincerely,

    Rolf eBay Customer Support

    Well, boycotting EBAY and sending them a response to their Customer Support is what we need to do.

    They probally should have just listed the hunt auction for Canis Lupus then E Bay would be too stupid to figure it out.
