    VERY ILLEGAL!!!!!!!!

    S. oreophila seed for sale on E Bay. Highly illegal!!!!!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Carnivorous-Sarr...QQcmdZViewItem

    Alberta, Canada is where these are from, and it is totally against Cites 1 restrictions. Who knows how to get ahold of E Bay to tell them to pull this or face the consequences!

    I especially liked the part about getting a free e-book and one of the chapters covered conservation lmao.

    at the bottom right under where you enter in your bid it gives a link to report it. I just did and had a problem with selecting a subtopic but then I clicked off and reselected and it's all cool now. Just sent them an e mail and telling it's against CITES.

    Wonder we he got the other seed he's selling.

    From the feedback for this seller he's sold at least 5 packets of S. oreophila in previous auctions.

    Okay, I reported 8 auction items where this guy was selling or sold S. oreophila seeds to eBay as "Items containing parts of regulated, protected, or endangered species"

    I also sent an email to wildlife.enforcement@ec.gc.ca which is the Enforcement Authority for Canada which is listed on the CITES website.
