"Beaver Dam Common Council voted to not allow kangaroos to be considered service animals after a woman brought her kangaroo into a McDonald’s."

Only dogs and miniature horses from now on.

ADDED: From the image-search annals of "therapy kangaroo":



That's not the Beaver Dam kangaroo. That's the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma kangaroo, who "rides in a car seat, is dressed in a shirt and pants each day and is rarely away from his doting caretaker."

So, my service leopard is unwelcome as well. Bigots!

Wouldn't Moyer's kangaroo be grandfathered in?

The service animal concept is out of control. Way out of control.

Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my chipmonkey.

What? No Grizzly Bears?

But my kangaroo identifies with being a miniature horse.

That's a great headline, Dave.

Recently saw an other-wise normal and healthy looking 30something female in an airport with a mid-sized dog wearing a vest that read: emotional support animal.
If you an need emotional support dog to travel, you should not travel.

Cute 'roo.

I assume there's an exception for service beavers.
Guess me and my therapy lice wouldn't be welcome in a Beaver Falls barbershop, though.

No beavers? We could all make jokes about beaver therapy.

Gotta be an equal protection violation in here somewhere.

Or just claim the animal is a cat who thinks it is a kangaroo.

I am 99% sure that is not a Kangaroo but a Wallaby.

The Wallaby is much much smaller and more docile. An adult kangaroo is potentially very very dangerous.

PS - Yes, we lived in Oz for a year,it was great, learned that every thing there can kill you.

There are a lot of out of pocket expenses in maintaining a kangaroo.

Having grown up on a farm in Australia, I can tell you that kangaroos (and, I presume, wallabies) do not make good pets. In fact, kangaroos are dangerous: if provoked enough, they bring their hind legs up and grab you with the forepaws, then jerk their hind legs downwards so the claws on their hind legs slice you open.
