Good for you --- your conscious got the best of you--- hope something is done - I was thinking of getting the name of the school from you and location and I was going to turn them in- find a local rescue place and give them a location etc..............

I'd be happy to tell you but the teacher refuses to let it go.
As I mentioned he was promised to us last February and husband has been taking salads every day (even going in on his days off) as well as cleaning out the 100 crickets she dumps in once every two weeks and leaves hopping all over him. When she said no he even had a wad of cash ready to flash at her and she still refused.
Very infuriating.

The dragon needs to be confiscated by the rescue people -- they can come in and take it since she is not caring for it properly

How is that legal minus due process?
And how could I then get hold of it?
Husband would get fired for sure if we cause that amount of drama. Much as I hate what's happening I'm not risking his job.

I'm glad you are taking an active interest in helping out a dragon, that's quite important. Unfortunately (in the US anyway) the law treats them as property so they can't just be confiscated. I advise against any such actions (although I completely understand it). I think the best you can do is try to provide as much care info as possible and perhaps provide good lighting, other equipment, and healthy food and hope it gets put to good use.

Sounds to me like that teacher is taking advantage of the free labor provided by your husband. But there's no good answer for that since stopping it would leave the beardie in the non-care of the teacher :-(
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D

Sadly I am not in the financial position to donate an entire habitat to a teacher who doesn't give a crap. If she was trying or even seemed like she halfway cared I would of course help all I could. I could not really afford all the stuff I bought when we thought we were getting him and I'll be jiggered if I'm giving it to HER.
He'll keep feeding and cleaning but I have to draw a line somewhere and buying equipment is my line.
It's simply a sucky situation.

For closure- the classroom dragon has been removed from the school premises. Presumably the teacher took him home where hopefully there are family members who are better at caring for an animal than she has been.

I wish him the best.

Thanks for the update. I also hope that he has found his way to a good place where he is well cared for.
