Illegal Web Sales: Pythons, Birds, More

People across 10 Florida counties have been issued citations and warnings for illegally selling animals online, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Some of the animals for sale included ball pythons, spiny lobsters and lovebirds. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission targeted people who were either selling animals without a license, or peddling creatures that are illegal to sell. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
