Complaints continue to pour in from customers of malls across the U.S. regarding Pocket Pets, a traveling kiosk that sells tiny, exotic marsupials called “sugar gliders.” PETA has reached out to executives at Chicago’s Urban Retail Properties as well as to management at Eastwood Mall in Ohio, but our pleas appear to have fallen on deaf ears. We need your help today!
Sugar gliders are tiny nocturnal marsupials who, in nature, live in groups of 30. They spend their time in trees searching for insects and sap and frolicking with family. Kiosks and pet shops are now acquiring them from hellish breeding facilities similar to puppy mills. They are then peddled as cheap trinkets to customers who buy them on a whim. Confined to small cages, roughly handled, fed improper diets, and forgotten when the novelty wears off, sugar gliders are doomed from the moment they’re born.
