Tired of 'Fake' Service Animals?

Well do something about it!

Did you know that in many States it is ILLEGAL to pass off an animal as a 'service animal' if it isn't legitimately one at all? In many cases it is also illegal to use a service dog if you are not disabled.

I too was surprised when I read it but here you go...

Fakers can be charged with a misdemeanor, fined $1000, even JAILED!

Maybe make pax aware of this fact if they push the issue with an obvious 'fake' service animal. In this way you are not asking them for proof, you are forcing their hand to produce it. If they are persistent just tell them you will have the police come and sort it out, bet they cancel the ride shortly thereafter.
