Facebook let her sell dead polar bears' skulls on their website. This highly vulnerable species must be protected!

Facebook has just been caught allowing a woman from Canada to illegally advertise and sell the skulls of dead polar bears to people in the U.S. Vanessa Rondeau runs a boutique shop filled with expensive "oddities" — primarily the heads and bodies of dead animals, including endangered, vulnerable, and protected species. This violates the U.S. Endangered Species Act, making it a crime. Yet to this day, her shop's Facebook page is still live and active, and filled with new posts about other murdered animals' remains.

Over the past six years, Rondeau has shared approximately 30 posts offering polar bear skulls for sale, providing information such as: "Friday deal!! Juvenile polar bear skull 280$" In doing this, Rondeau knew she was breaking the law. When speaking with a buyer who happened to actually be an undercover agent with the U.S. government, she bragged that authorities had never caught her. But ultimately, the shop owner was so flagrant with her criminal activities that authorities sniffed her out. So why hasn't Facebook done anything? Sign the petition to demand that Facebook kick this seller off its site, and actually abide by U.S. laws protecting endangered animals!

Thank you,

P.S. This shop on Facebook illegally sells the body parts of endangered animals, including polar bears, crocodiles, and three-toed sloths. Facebook must shut this seller down.
