    It has come to our attention that the online auction site eBay has apparently taken it upon itself to enforce its own interpretation of the Endangered Species Act. SCI would like to make you, your friends, chapter members and ALL hunters aware of a policy statement that eBay recently posted in response to a query about auctioning an Idaho governor's wolf tag.

    The following email, in which eBay stated it that considers "all wolves within the U.S. as endangered, regardless of their actual designation," came directly from an eBay.com customer representative.

    Letter from eBay

    Thank you for writing eBay in regard to listing your charitable item. In general, hunts for non-endangered animal species are permitted on eBay. However, eBay has made the decision to treat all wolves within the U.S. as endangered, regardless of their actual designation. As a result, you will not be able to list your wolf hunt on eBay. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. To find out more about our policy, visit: Animals and wildlife products policy. It is my pleasure to assist you. Thank you for choosing eBay.
    Sincerely,
    Rolf

    ..At first this really agitated me but after second thoughts I have a differing opinion! I'm by no means a e-bay fan nor user. I truly think their reasoning could be that if you ban all the hunts of wolves there will be no problems . With the changing of the Wolf status ( seems like every other day) this keeps their noses clean as some one would have to really be up on the current regulations of each state etc to protect not only themselves but the buyer also. It should be buyer beware, but the way the court system is now a day it could easily fall back on e-bay!!
    >>>Being an SCI member it saddens me some what that not allowing this hunt prevents some one from huntin, but until the tree huggers & goody 2 shoes leave the wolf management to the States & hunters this will be a touchy subject!
