Family's Pug Sold on Ebay by City to Settle Tax 3

Human inhumanity to fur baby

When one family in the German city of Ahlen couldn’t settle  their obligations to the city, the city official  settled on a sensational choice: to sell the family  fur baby  on eBay.

The city defended  their choice to sell the pug, Edda, on the site for €750 ($850) after the family neglected to pay obligations to the city, including a dog duty.

German news agency dpa   quoted Dirk Schlebes, Ahlen’s treasurer,  as saying the seizure was legal and only happened after other nonessential family belongings  had been taken.
