Just my opinion, but if you have another breeding pair, what's the big deal about these two breeding? If it were me, I would get the male neutered and continue to work with the female. She may be too stressed out to become a mom, crazy as it sounds. I read your posts about working with the Greyhounds and Horses, and that's great, but it sort of sounds like you're at your witts end with this glider not being able to breed. I don't think she should be condemmed for that. If his is the case, maybe you should let one of the people on the board adopt her.
: Somehow I doubt you've owned your glider(s) for a long time if you even have gliders. I dont know, but we haven't "missed the whole point". Most of us here love our gliders dearly and care about them(the species) and not so much about peoples feelings. Im guilty of this quite often and Im proud of it. I've been insulted and told I dont care so many times I dont even care what people think. I dont know about you but my girl has birthed 5 joeys in my hands over the years. She's gone to Disney with me(thank you B!) she's done so much with me and to think of another glider being possibly put to sleep because she isnt a good mother and isnt the friendliest thing is insane! You CANNOT make a glider breed. If she kept killing babies over the years doesnt that give you a clue to check into her diet/health sooner? If none of that was even mentioned I think there would've been less "shock" in the post and less people upset. But who am I to say? Im only a narrow minded, glider loving freak, thats all.
: Mary- I must say, without your calm, rational posts I would have blown up and started in. Thank you for explaning things without the attitude(like I do). Good job!
