PHOENIX, - A law officially forbidding ferrets from being brought into the Arizona restaurants has taken effect.
Friday, the 90th day since this year's legislative session was adjourned, marked the day 256 new laws took effect in the state, including the ferret ban, which stems from efforts to narrow the number of species considered "service animals," Capital Media Services reported Monday.
Laws previously allowed several types of animals to be claimed as "service animals" and brought into restaurants and other facilities by people with disabilities, but the new law restricts the designation to dogs and miniature horses.
Miniature horses were left on the list due to their ability to be trained, greater physical strength than dogs and their longevity.
gooood afternoon NSA
Frank Burns is not amused.
I consider this as an example of specieism, thus discriminatory, thus I am agin it.
No ferrets, no peace!
Yes, yes I do. In honor of the FR Zot patrol, my eldest tomcat is name, Sporkweasel, or “Sporky”, for short.
There was a funny story back in the early eighties that shock jock DJ's around the country told that involved a gerbil, paper towel tube, a book of matches and a gas flame.
They are banned from the ENTIRE STATE of Michigan.
It’s about damn time. It’s getting so you can’t swing a dead cat in a Phoenix restaurant without hitting a ferret.
They allow horses in restaurants? Have they not ever seen a horse piss?
That’s racist! What about those people who can’t afford a miniature horse? Guess that means you can’t take in your rats, cockroaches and flies.
Cats do not have human pets. Cats have staff.
