#19689 - 04/09/04 03:26 AM still illegal in Dallas

awhile back i posted about a conversation i had with an animal control officer for Dallas who informed me that suggies are illegal in Dallas, then someone replied that they spoke to someone at city hall & that they were considered "Pocket Pets" & not affected by the exotic ban in Dallas; NOT TRUE!!! i met a SUPERVISOR for animal control in Dallas at Wal-Mart & she reconfirmed my original fear: sugar gliders are NOT exempted from the exotic animal ban in the city of Dallas, Texas! if found, suggies are CONFISCATED AND DESTROYED!!!!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tantrum.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tantrum.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tantrum.gif" alt="" />

Loc: Lone Star State
Before I relocated to Texas from Michigan, I contacted the Texas County clerk & asked her - "Is there any ordinance that prohibits the private possession of exotic animals"
(I did not mention what species of animals - who knows what species I may adopt next)

I was sent this counties regulation on exotic animals & informed that many Texas Cities were looking at changing their Exotic animal laws!
I have also been hearing concern from other marsupial owners nationwide as well - those who have Macropods, as several states are talking of banning them also.

This could be a good reason not to hold a USDA license!
(A few years ago, several people lost their very healthy & beloved brushtail possums)

I am aware of the laws in my county, but will continue to watch closely before purchasing a home <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/agree.gif" alt="" />

Did you get the supervisors name and number I would like to speak to them. can you pm me the info.

#19692 - 04/11/04 10:00 AM Re: still illegal in Dallas [Re: ]

I've always been told they are illegal in the city limits of Dallas.. I hope you guys get this cleared up tho.. good luck.

#19693 - 04/24/04 02:35 AM Re: still illegal in Dallas [Re: ]

It is always best to look at the actual written law itself. Particularly when you get verbal conflicting information from government officials.

Well, me and my suggar-nuts are going to head for dallas in a week or so, we will have to see what is happening up there!
