Just talked to a lady at Georgia's Wildlife Resources Comission - Special Permits Unit (770-761-3044) and she confirmed that Suggies are now legal in Georgia. The only requirement is that the buyer needs to buy them from a USDA licensed breeder and obtain a copy of the license and a receipt.

You can also find the same info here: Georgia Wildlife

It's wonderful, though, and I undstand why they only want them bought through a liscensed breeder, that also means that folks in GA can't do any rescues or re-homing for wayward gliders.

As a rescuer, this also makes me sad. Many people rescue and don't qualify for a USDA breeders/Brokers license. This would exclude anyone from obtaining previously unwanted gliders from such rescuers.

Perhaps we will need to set up a network of USDA licensed breeders that can help us place the rescues into homes.

So this also means that people who already own gliders can't move to Georgia unless we can go back to the original breeder & get a copy of their license & a backdated receipt? And people like me who own a glider from poor establishments like Westwind Critters, just have no chance?

IMO, this new law is no better...

Was anyone here involved in the passing/writing/or desire to write this bill? If so, can you please PM me... I have some questions, related to getting this done in another state.
