Sugar Gliders are wonderful pets and can be great companions perfect especially for people in wheelchairs because they will always have that special buddy with them. Sugar Gliders bond to people very well, because in the wild they live in packs so they naturally want to bond to everyone in your family. They are no danger for the state of Massachusetts because if set free into the wild they would most likely die because their bodies need warmer temperatures, so come winter they could freeze on their own.When put in a loving home however sugar gliders flourish and love their entire family including pets, another reason why so many people love them. They can't really breed in the wild, though in a home they will flourish. Also they carry no diseases because they are not rodents, but marsupials. There really is no danger to the state by making them lega; Many people in Massachusetts get Sugar Gliders, not aware that they are illegal in the state, because they were purchased in a different state, and if in any case, their sugar glider may get sick if they try to bring the sugar glider to the vet it will be taken away from them. In the case that they are not put to sleep after this (for that does sometimes happen) the sugar glider will become depressed because they were so closely bonded to their family. It can take up to a year or two for them to get over this and they can even die from it just like a human being, they are just like us and people are still treating them incredibly unethically. There is no real reason for sugar gliders to be illegal so please sign this petition to make them legal in Massachusetts
