Demand Convention Stop Supporting Cruel Animal Trade

Sugar Glider GarrettTT

Target: Miriam Kruger, Executive Director of Motor City Comic Con, Farmington Hills, Michigan

Goal: Do not host Pocket Pets, a company that sells sugar gliders, at Motor City Comic Con.

The Motor City Comic Con is planning on hosting Pocket Pets, a traveling company that sells sugar gliders. Sugar gliders are small marsupials that belong in the wild, not people’s homes.

Sugar gliders are nocturnal animals who enjoy playing and living among the trees in large groups. When these animals are sold as pets, they are then stuck in cages alone, kept awake during the day, fed unnatural diets and then usually forgotten about when the family becomes bored with them.

It’s a sad life for sugar gliders and other exotic pets stuck in captivity because they were never meant for one. These animals belong in the wild. Sign this petition and demand the Motor City Comic Con no longer host Pocket Pets.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Kruger,

The Motor City Comic Con is planning on hosting the traveling company, Pocket Pets, which sells sugar gliders. Sugar gliders are small marsupials that belong in the wild, not people’s homes.

Sugar gliders are nocturnal animals who enjoy living in large groups and playing in trees. These animals cannot live anything close to a natural life when they are stuck in people’s homes. When these animals are held in captivity, they are confined to cages, fed improper diets, kept awake during the day and are typically alone. Captivity denies everything natural to these animals.

Please consider no longer hosting Pocket Pets at your Comic Con. Sugar gliders are living, feeling animals, not novelty items.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    WHY do these companies continually condone animal abuse! Don’t care? GREED? LACK OF PROPER EDUCATION? Sugar Gliders should be banned, people working on this and yet this company promotes the abuse.

  2. They also tend to die in captivity, no matter how well meaning the care…..they NEED to not be captive animals…..millions of dogs and cats are killed yearly in animal shelters, and they make the BEST pets. Please reconsider “exotic” pets!

  3. END THE POCKET PETS NOW.

  4. Eating animals like this and dog meat and bush meat can and usually does lead to horrible intestinal parasites and large worms that will eventually exit the body bis the butt. Enjoy!

  5. I got these worms from some tainted food that my dr said must have contacted bush meat or dog, large thick long worms crawled out my ass!! I will never go to Africa again. But go to this convention and try these sliders, I am sure you are gonna freak out at the size of these worms, and wait till they crawl out your ass, oh boy!! Good luck suckers!!!!!!
