The states you have in purple are LEGAL states. They ARE legal in Georgia PROVIDING they are purchased from a USDA licensed breeder and you have the paperwork to prove it.

They are legal in MA but only with a permit and they are not issuing permits (so basically making them illegal).

Keep in mind though, that although legal in the state, they might still be illegal in the county or city/town within that state.

Example, gliders are illegal in all 5 boroughs of NYC. They are illegal in Lawrence KS. They are illegal in Dallas TX.

So be sure you double check with your local authorities before bringing home gliders.

I *think* the reason Teresa commented on Georgia is because you have them listed as illegal unless...But Georgia worked really hard to have them legalized and they are in fact legal (under certain circumstances, yes, but still considered a legal state). thumb

Theyre illegal in Dallas???? I bought my girls from a "usda licenced" breeder in Dallas.... If they were illegal how did he get a license? Or does he not really have one? Im so confused.

It could be that he lives just outside Dallas city limits. Or he lied.

Thank you, Alicia, for taking the time to put this out here for everyone. This certainly will be a great help!


You might want to consider incorporating a list of Illegal Boroughs/Counties in some states.

Virginia Illegal Counties
Chesterfield Co, Fairfax Co, City of Manassas, Newport News, Prince William Co, and Spotsylvania County.

NYC Boroughs Illegal
Gliders are illegal in all 5 Burroughs of NYC. They are legal in LI.

The 5 Boroughs are The Bronx, Brooklyn,Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island

The USDA does not always check the local laws, they expect you to do that yourself. I know with my state wildlife rehabilitation permit, they expected me to abide by my local laws and left it there. So, the breeder may be USDA, but is still breaking the law in their location.

I thought they came to your house for inspection though? They would do tht even if you are somewhere illegal? Either way I think its weird that they are illegal in some places and not in others....

it is strange and seems silly. But the feds don't seem to care about local laws, they expect you to abide by the laws... I haven't gotten my USDA yet, but I assume there would be a clause in there that you acknowledge that the "USDA permit does not supercede the local laws, and even in your business you need to obey local laws."

At least that was the style of the clause in the DNR permit that I held. There were people around here who had to relinquish their raccoons (they were there ONLY for rehabilitation) because Minneapolis laws have something funny about wild animals in captivity, even with a permit. But Minneapolis only did something to this individual because they had a complaint from a neighbor who saw the animals outside when she was cleaning cages.

Here is a post on GG debating if they are legal in Dallas TX!
I am trying to gather acurate information so when any of us are asked if glider's are legal in such and such state or such and such town we will 99% of the time be able to answer acurately and no one will have to worry about selling a glider to someone in an illegal state or town! People don't realize it is the glider who gets hurt if they get caught with them in an illegal place!

Me asking for VERIFICATION is in no way debating. In 3 1/2 years on the boards, I hadn't heard it...so I ASKED. Not a debate. I'd still like the info if anyone has it. You yourself said you were trying to provide accurate info, yes?

Unfortunately, that statement is probably true HOWEVER, if people can see something legally stating they're illegal, it would be more likely to deter them. I think the issue is that we can't seem to find it or don't know where to look. Are they not sold by breeders in Dallas?

Yes and I understand that but there is no reason to turn something that is meant to be helpful and informative into a debate! If you want proof the information is coming from different sources many posted all is needed is a simple asking of how someone knows they are illegal in the specific state or town instead of posting on other forums without even asking the person who posted it is illegal in the specific place! Anyone can ask questions as well I understand the need for proof and more information that is what this thread is meant for! smile

Which is exactly what I read on a blog - which was posted by someone who claimed to be a cop - when *I* was trying to research, in order to answer the question Kyro asked.

Your comment is taken out of context, and quite insulting. If I read "cops don't care" somewhere, and report that I read it, it does not suddenly become either fact, nor my opinion. It is merely something I read, and reported.
