PODCAST - When Support Animals are woodland creatures.

November 14th, 2017

A Florida man who rescued a squirrel during Hurricane Matthew is now fighting his condo association for the right to keep the rodent as an emotional support animal. Ryan Boylan, of Clearwater Beach, rescued Brutis after the storm rocked Florida in 2016 and quickly fell in love. His doctor later wrote him a prescription for an emotional support animal after a car crash left him with several herniated disks in his lower back and PTSD. But Boylan never notified property managers in writing that Brutis was an emotional support animal until recently. He received a notice last month to either get rid of Brutis — an exotic animal that’s not allowed, according to the condo association — or face eviction. Boylan has since contacted the Pinellas County Office of Human Rights, claiming discrimination.
