Looks like he/she is keeping their guinea pigs outside. Intolerable. Flagged.

I'm not sure how to feel about flagging this.. They clearly want to find homes for all of them and flagging will prevent this.

I feel horrible for those piglets!! :(

Yeah, i kind of agree. Are they a breeder that is going to continue production? If not, I don't know if they should be flagged. Otherwise, the pigs may not be rehomed. Anyone else think the same?

Now that you say that, I feel really bad.

Yet, there is no reason to breed pets.

I wish I could flag the person, and not the pigs. The pigs did nothing wrong.

Dont feel bad. I don't think the posting has gone down. As long as anyone else doesn't flag them it's probably okay.

To me this sounded more like they are giving away their breeding pigs, stopping the breeding. That's why I thought it could be different in this case :)

To me it sounds and looks like a hoarding situation. :(

We think that someone thought they had the same gender pigs and let them free range around their house but turned out they were different genders and had babies then their babies had babies and it got out of control. They might take it to a shelter, but I don't know if they would take that many. I am surprised that they all get along assuming all the pigs do. I might have assumed to quickly but I saw that many pigs and it wasn't a shelter and I was just kind of.. I don't know.

I think that instead of flagging them, I'd find out where they lived and call animal control. This looks and feels like a hoarder. They are living in unacceptable conditions. 35 is A LOT! Not just that, but the ad says that they have "around 35" to rehome. Does not state why they have so many or why they are rehoming. I would definitely try looking into it further. :(

They all get along so nicely because the aggression, bullying and dominance is more spread out.
Did you speak with the poster of the ad?

No. I'm afraid I have not spoken to them which I know I will get yelled at but. I am a nervous person I guess I might email asking in a minute.

I totally agree with the actions everyone has taken. That being said, I thought this pic looked familiar. This is a picture from the Kyoto Zoo guinea pig colony in Japan. Here is a link to their video and you can also find their website online. (And i feel pretty terrible for these zoo piggies too.) I do feel badly for these pigs and do think that reporting them is correct. I just thought I'd point out the picture error.

Hmm. I think it actually may be someone pranking but the way they write it maybe not. The only reason I say prank is because by me we have had a lot of arguments on craigslist about pets stores and breeding. And some people think it is funny to aggravate the people against breeding. All though the one person against breeding is even flagging re homing ads.
