Washington D.C.– Imagine searching for a baby crib or perhaps a high chair on Craigslist, when suddenly you stumble upon this: “2-month-old female for sale.”
Unfortunately, that is exactly what several visitors to the site saw on Friday. According to the Washington Post, several people called police and Craigslist pulled the listing shortly after it was posted.
The Post says the following pitch was used in the ad:
“we had a kid but we just can’t handle it right now in our lives. she is up to date on her vaccinations medical records will be provided. we have been calling her Juliet but you can rename her if you want. sorry if you think this is wrong but we think the best way of insuring a happy life for her is to give her to an affluent couple that wants to have kids enough [sic] to pay for it. pics on request.”
