This man is clearly one of the most ignorant people I've ever had to misfortune of encountering. The lawyer said it best- as service animal is an extension of that person just like a wheelchair, a cane, or any other kind of device used to assist a person with a disability. I would not normally support immediately taking legal action against store owners because honestly, most people aren't aware of what a vital role service dogs play in the lives of people with disabilities, but its clear from this man's sound bite that he is not only ignorant, but he isn't willing to learn. You can't tell someone who can't walk that THEY can come in the store, but they have to leave the wheelchair outside because it might leave tire treads on the carpet. Service animals are incredibly well behaved. They've gone through years of training to behave in public settings. This man's merchandise was in no way in jeopardy any more so than if a woman with long hair entered the store! I believe he deserves 20 days in jail for his stupidity and I believe that we should make a point to not buy from this fool from this point on. Thanks WWAY for finding this story and exposing this man for what he is to the public.
