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.

this is sad. There's males and females in there. I can just imagine all the problems they have and how fast they reproduce. I wonder how many they have die everyday :( UGH people disappoint me.

The post has been removed and the person never answered me. So I am going to guess prank or scam.

Well, atleast they sound like they've taken action to stop the breeding. I'd send them the Cavy Spirit's link on sexing guinea pigs for her pregnant guinea pigs and to further make sure everyone is in their correct pens.

I like the occasionally part... We all know that's a huge lie...

I agree about the pic of the zoo. It now feels more like a scam. Or MAYBE their guinea pigs are in a more horrible condition than the zoo's pic?

Maybe. I have had a couple times people use pictures from the internet but actually have the animals. Usually because like you said horrid conditions or they don't have a camera/ can't upload.
