This week’s piece of odd new comes all the way from the city of Detroit, where a bus driver’s decision of telling a man to got take hike sparked a heated debate about the service animal. According to the authorities, the bus driver argued with the discontent citizen for several minutes about the man’s intent of riding the bus with Deer, his ‘service goat.’
Man with Goat Says He’s Got Papers Saying That Deer is His ‘Service Dog’
Who said that riding the bus should be dull? Certainly not the anxious Detroit passengers who were forced to wait a while longer to get home, after the bus driver got into an unusual argument with an individual.
According to an eyewitness, the bus driver was just about to close the door and go to the next station, when another passenger appeared in the door. There appeared to be nothing wrong with the individual until he started climbing the starts.
The bus driver quickly realized that the man was not riding alone but accompanied by than a goat.
At the sight of the animal, the bus driver told the man, later identified as Erick Brown, that the goat can’s go on the bus. Brown quickly became defensive and replied that his goat named Deer was not just an animal but a full-fledged service animal.
More than that, the man offered to show the bus driver some papers, attesting that Deer, the goat, was his ‘service dog.’
However, the driver reiterated the fact that animals are not allowed on the bus and Deer is certainly no service animal. As a result, the man and his goat had to walk home on foot.
Following the incident, the man filed a complaint against the public transportation company. However, the Detroit Department of Transportation declared that the bus driver acted right and that Deer was not a service animal but a therapy pet.
