Endangered Species Being Sold on Facebook?

Oh, yuck: endangered species are being sold on Facebook. “Traffic, a global wildlife trade monitoring network, released a report today that exposes rampant illegal wildlife trade on the site. For five months, the group’s researchers monitored 14 Groups on Facebook in Malaysia, everyday, for a half hour a day. What did they find? Over 300 wild, live animals being sold as pets on the website. Nearly half the animals’ species were protected or illegal to sell under Malay law.”
