I need some help in finding out if these two states are illegal.

If only parts of either ones are illegal, if anyone know what parts they are, that would greatly help.

thanks

NJ requires permits, I believe... but it's my understanding that they aren't particularly expensive or difficult to obtain.

You must get a wildlife permit to have them in NJ. Costs $10 every year. They ask very basic questions: where you got them, size of cage, vet you use, etc.

Gliders are NOT illegal on Long Island. They ARE illegal in the 5 Boroughs-- Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. Long Island is NOT one of the boroughs. Several GC members live on Long Island (legally) with their gliders.

There are so many people who have pets in the Bronx. Some kids posts on craigslist wanting to trade his gliders. He doesn't even have a cage for them, he keeps them in the bathroom. And he doesn't really take care of them. If I had the new Iphone I would totally trade with him. That is so unfair to them. I could see if they were actually getting the proper care, but they aren't.

although they are technically illegal in the 5 boros..i brought my first glider to an exotic vet IN manhattan. they only see exotics, and feature some of their clients on the website - many of which are "illegal", including ferrets, and even a fennec fox! i was paranoid it would be a sting operation when i brought my baby in for her wellness exam, but they didnt even mention she was illegal, and have had experience with other gliders in the past.

So is it illegal to reside with a sugar glider in these boroughs, or is it illegal to even "pass through" with a glider? The reason I ask is that my sister and her husband just moved to NYC - somewhere near Central Park, from what google maps says. Am I going to get me / her in trouble if I took a glider with me for a weekend visit?

http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/downloads/pdf/zoo/zoo-animal-healthcode.pdf

according to this bill, it looks as though its illegal no matter what, even if theyre just here for a visit.

i havent heard any horror stories (yet) of people being caught in or around NYC with gliders, and again, i DID bring mine to a vet IN manhattan, but..that was a stupid risk i took, and will probably not be repeating it. there are plenty of vets in LI that i can bring my girls to safely. i have heard in other locations that if an illegal glider is found, they are confiscated on the spot and euthanized, no questions, no other options.

not sure what the punishment is for you personally (IE fine, summons etc), besides risking the lives of your pets.

They are illegal and yes, even driving through without stopping is technically illegal as well. I do nto know of any efforts to legalize them... I know they have tried with ferrets for years and years with no luck. NYC will not budge.
I know there are people who illegaly own banned animals in NYC...
I know there is probabley a fine but dunno how much and the illegal animals are euthanized. Not worth it in my book.

I would personally not take that risk - the consequences, should you be caught, are just not worth it.

Should you decide to bring gliders into your life, bring them to me to glidersit. This way, they're well taken care of and you don't have to worry about a thing.
