YEAR 2007 Local Legislation



St. Paul Bans Sugar Gliders

- The St. Paul City Council has voted 6-to-1 to ban people from keeping sugar gliders as pets.
The marsupials are native to Australia and resemble flying squirrels.
Animal-control officers sounded the alarm weeks ago after learning that sugar gliders had become the latest fad pet.
They look cute, but they're high-maintenance. They require space to jump around, make a lot of noise, eat specialized diets, and mark territory with their scent.
The fear is the might be abandoned by their owners and turn into exotic nuisances on a par with zebra mussels or flying carp.
But defenders say sugar gliders are friendly and cuddly, and say the smell isn't that bad if you feed them the right foods.
Alaska, California and Massachusetts have also banned them.
