Facebook should change their policy and allow the LEGAL sale of pets and livestock.

Facebook has become a community marketplace. It is much safer than Craigslist as it requires the use or real names and allows you to "vet" buyers before a sale. It also gives you a cushion of protection for interactions, as you don't have to provide addresses or phone numbers until you reach the point that you want to proceed with an actual sale.
Banning the sale of live animals is NOT helping animals. It drives sales to craigslist where the kill buyers and bait dealers lurk. It means that animals do not get the exposure to the largest amount of people, so can fall through the cracks and end up at kill lots and shelters, or simply dumped. Sales have actually been going on since FB became public, it is only now that the trolls are reporting people and doing it to harm farms, businesses, breeders and individuals. It is a block in interstate and international free trade, as it prevents like minded breeders from knowing what is out there and getting in touch with people. Facebook takes money for boosting sale posts and advertising, and then removes the posts or blocks the poster, which is hypocritical. Don't let animals fall through the cracks because some trolls want to harass legitimate sellers.
