Baby sugar glider taken from South Elgin pet shop

January 12, 2014 (SOUTH ELGIN, Ill.)

A worker at Critters Pet Shop on Randall Road said it was taken either Thursday evening or Friday morning.

It happened while a worker was changing the animal's food and left the cage unlocked.

The baby sugar glider is about two months old and the size of a silver dollar and without its mom's milk, it could die.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact the shop.
