NY-Craigslist-Three Listings

* If responding to a Craigslist ad meet in a public place, or go with a friend. Google the phone number of the poster to
ensure it matches the name he or she gives *

LISTING REMOVED. Brockport (near Rochester), NY: Brown and black haired guinea girl needs a new home. Small adoption fee includes cage, water bottle, food dish, and pigloo. "She loves to be held and is a great pet." This piggie sounds wonderful, and I'm sure she would love to have friends, both human and piggie.

LISTING REMOVED. Syracuse, NY: Baby guinea girl is ready for her forever home. The poster rescued her mom who surprised her with some bouncing (popcorning and zooming) baby pigs. Boys have found a home, now lady girl needs one too!

Queens, NY: RETRACTION: THESE PHOTOS ARE PHOTOSHOPPED. THE GROUP PICTURE WAS FOUND ONLINE. I am basing the following statement on no additional knowledge from what is in the ad, just a little feeling I have: I don't think these pigs are really the poster's. Probably wrong, and don't let it discourage you from getting the pigs (because sn@ke man don't care), just me realizing again how people can be jerks. Three guinea girls available for adoption. Two are a mother daughter pair. Despite the fact that they all are bonded, the poster says take one or all (btw, they're fr33). Take all of them and you get the FRICKIN HUGE C&C CAGE. And what's the reason for rehoming them? Lack of space. 3 pigs need 2X5 feet, minimum. How about downgrading instead of effectively offering your pigs to their death? Oh, and even though newspaper isn't the pictured bedding in the photo, the poster says newspaper is all you need. Guinea pig owners everywhere are laughing, and laughing, and laughing. New York Times would have a lot more subscriptions if that were the case. Also comes with supplies. the hell is going on? DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS AD!
