EBAY ALLOWING SALES OF "PONY-SKIN" PRODUCTS! 29 ITEMS AVAIALABLE!
26 Pony Skin Items on Ebay!http://search.ebay.com/pony-skin_W0QQcatrefZC3QQfromZR2
If only ebay knew of the cruelty involved in the "harvesting" of these skins, maybe, just maybe, they would no longer allow them to be sold on their site.
Pony-skins are taken from the bodies of very young foals (baby horses,) PMU and Nurse Mare Foals, who are the unwanted by-products of the two industries.
Here is a link to another petition where you can learn more about PMU & NurseMare Farms and what happpens to these un-wanted by product baby-horses: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/21/stop-the-killing-of-newborn-baby-horses
Here also is a link to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) where you can read about what they think of ebay;

Please contact ebay and tell them NOT to allow the selling of any horse, pony or foal skin items as we Americans DO NOT eat horse meat of any kind and these little babies are not even killed for their meat, they are killed only for their skin! The methods of "harvesting" these baby-horse skins is barbarically cruel! Many of them are too young to send to slaughter so they are clubbed over the head at the stable before they even take their first breath! These poor "non-food animal" babies were killed exclusivley for their skin to make the products you see here available on ebay today!!!
Email ebay at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or better yet, here is their toll free telephone # 1-888-749-3229
(Good Luck getting through to a live operator; you may want to
fax them your views; Ebay Fax. # (801) 880 - 8754
and let them know what you think of ebay allowing the sale of these "cruelty-produced products" on their otherwise respectable world-wide site.
Thanks for Caring!
