I know i do not post very often, I hope and pray that this wonderful community can help.

A ban has started in about 10 states right now to ban exotic animals. Some states are more strict than others, but basically when the bans pass they can add animals at any time to the ban. If we stop them in their tracks we can stop them from adding additional animals in the future, and taking away our rights.

Right now they are focusing on Primates and Reptiles. All the literature states dogs cause more injury to the American people then responsible ownership of exotic animals (sugar gliders included). Please take the time to sign the petition and stop our rights from being taken away!!
I also included the current bill proposal numbers for anyone who would like to see them- like I said there are about 10 states right now with different versions. I just included TN.

Tennessee has SB3892 (senate bill) and HB3487 (house bill)

I'm signing for the same reason I'm signing the reptile one. I'm thinking of our country as less than a democracy as more and more of our "freedoms" are stripped away. SOPA, PIPA, guns, pet bans... What's next!? The right to breath?

Ugh. Naturally the sight would be suddenly under-going maintenance.

Write letters too.

I am working on an exotics ban here in Middleton, WI. As soon as it is signed into an actual ordinance I will know if I am successful.

But as of today sugar gliders have been exempted from the ban. They are primarily focusing on primates, poisonous snakes and any snakes over 10 feet.

I started by just writing an informative email about sugar gliders as pets and sent it to all the members of the ordinance and licensing board.
