Gumtree is an Australian sale site that I frequently check to see what guinea pigs people are selling and rehoming. I've seen some bad ads before, but these look pretty awful:
http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/seville-grove/other-pets/guinea-pig-farm/1045083939
http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/armadale/other-pets/guinea-pigs-for-sale/1045409893

They are both seemingly from the same person. They call themselves a guinea pig "farm" and the animals appear to be being kept in very poor conditions (a small plastic box). I have reported them (by clicking the "!" icon) but I am unsure as to whether or not Gumtree will do anything about it, but hopefully they will remove the ads if enough people flag them!

If you select 'other' and then say something about animal cruelty, unsuitable conditions etc, then say it shows gumtree in a bad light, they usually take it down.
