A Darwin parent has allegedly put their child up or 'sale' on Gumtree for $50. A post was listed on Saturday night featuring a photo of a young boy and a pick-up address, neither of which have been confirmed. "Kid for sale fitty bucks," the listing read. "Can deliver/drop off. Or pick up. Gender male. Identifies as a three-meter flatty (fish)." A former Darwin resident stumbled across the post. “You find all sorts of quirky things but I wasn’t expecting to find a boy for sale,” she told the NT News. Gumtree has since issued a statement to 10daily explaining that the company "does not tolerate these types of adverts," and that there are a variety of measures in place to ensure similar advertisement do not make it on to the platform. "Our community support team are always available to answer questions and take down any listings reported that are unlawful,” it read.
