The BBC reports that German authorities seized a woman’s dog over delinquent taxes. The pooch—a pedigree pug named Edda—was then sold on eBay.

The dog’s owner, NPR reports, admitted the seizure was “legal.” Yet she was bothered by it nonetheless.

"How it all ended, that was absolutely not okay," the former owner said.

Media reports say three officials—a court bailiff and two city officials—arrived at her home in November and began searching for valuables. According to the BBC, German media say officials initially intended to seize the wheelchair of the woman’s disabled husband.


That assertion is fiercely contested by the city, with spokesman Frank Merschhaus calling it "a wicked rumour."

"Aids to guarantee the mobility of people with disabilities are absolutely exempt from being seized as collateral—unlike pets," he said. "No enforcement officer would come up with the idea."
