Apparently, ferrets aren’t allowed on buses in Canada.
A Canadian woman who suffers from agoraphobia, anxiety and panic attacks always takes one of her pet ferrets everywhere. Gyno, a 3-year-old albino, gives her a sense of calmness and security. She applied for – and recieved – a bus pass to take a ferret on the bus with her as a service animal. For some reason, the pass was revoked in April. Nobody’s told her why. So now she can’t use public transportation at all because of her mental conditions.
Well thank goodness the bus officials put that chaos to a stop!
Not really. That’s silly. I’m surprised people still have trouble using service animals in the modern world. Service animals are allowed on buses in the Oklahoma City area, a Metro Transit employee told me Thursday morning.
Have you or anyone you know ever had trouble taking a service animal somewhere in public? Maybe this is a story worth looking into.
