The baby girl was listed in the Baby and Children items classified section of KUTV.com for $6,560, according to a statement from Salt Lake police. The child’s condition was listed as “Used” and the sellers name was Pauline Burgman.
“We are giving up a 6 months old baby girl for adoption,” the classified stated. “She is so beautiful and affectionate with so much love to offer. Are you looking to adopt? Then consider this a dream come true.”
The adorable baby(pictured left), who was listed on Saturday, appeared on the classified ads section for only a short while before KUTV.com noticed and removed it.
Police are not sure if this is a prank or if the parents would like to put their daughter up for adoption, but don’t know how to go about it.
Anyone with information can contact police at 799-3000. This is not the first time a couple has tried to sell their baby. In December, a couple tried to sell their baby for $30 outside a Petsmart.
