Baby put up for sale on Craigslist: Canada police

Loonie (The bird is a loon) obverse.

I'm in complete agreement with the Canadians on this one. This should be treated as trafficking unlike the obvious joke about the baby on eBay up for sale for one euro.
A couple has been arrested in what Canadian police said on Tuesday was an apparent offer to sell a seven-day-old baby girl on Craigslist for C$10,000 ($10,100).

A woman who saw the offer on the popular website alerted police who tracked down the 23-year-old mother and 26-year-old father using a cell phone number that was listed in the advertisement.

Vancouver police said the couple told investigators the offer was a hoax, but were arrested for public mischief with other criminal charges possible as the investigation continues.
