It is important that our members - and all who ever wish to make a difference - be able to separate a PERSON from a JOB.

Despite any recent or future claims of total or partial policy or behavior change, MRGR, its agents, owner and employees continue to engage in behavior that warrants their listing here in our Big Meaners section.

MRGR and other mill brokers support the mill breeding trade through purchase of large quantities of gliders for the purpose of selling at trade shows, malls, fairs and the like. They promote and sustain the sale of gliders without lineage to uneducated and uninformed impulse buyers. MRGR is happy to claim themselves as "the largest and premiere USDA breeder of Sugar Gliders in the State of Mississippi"

The vast majority (for my facility, it is currently 100%, but I don't want to speak for all rescues) of people who purchase from MRGR and then later (within months) relinquish their gliders to a rescue home report that they feel they were "tricked" or "duped" into buying the glider(s) at a high price, with numerous unnecessary accessories or add-ons. They report that they were misinformed about the type, quantity and ease of care a glider requires and/or that they feel they were lied to or "tricked" about the bonding process with gliders. They are NOT relinquishing the gliders because they are terrible people or because they can't afford health care. They are relinquishing because they bought on impulse and were NOT properly or truthfully educated or informed at the time of purchase or the weeks following purchase. The impulse buyer is TARGETED by MRGR simply because the impulse buyer = profit. They are targeted despite any negative consequences for the glider.

Until such time as MRGR and MRGR's peers begin placing the LIVES that they barter as of greater importance than the money they make selling them, they will continue to make choices and engage in practices which negatively impact the dignity we have worked so hard to give to gliders and the high standards we have set in order to maintain healthy gliders with a lengthy life span.

During the time that I lived in Mississippi- Rebel Ranch sold out of the flea markets in Alabama. They don't travel down south in MS that much, their focus is more north along the MS/TN border & the reptile shows. They are always looking for brokers to expand their market.

He thinks they are positive but a true glider owner knows better. Wish Mystic had internet she could tell you more.
