This video and accompanying article inform us of a new problem for people with disabilities: they are being interrogated because some people are disguising their pets as service animals. Service animals go through months of training and have special licenses to be able provide disabled people with the care they need. Isn’t it ironic how people act like disabilities are an awful ordeal until it is convenient for them to take advantage of them? Disabled people face enough discrimination and problems in their everyday lives without having to further explain their disability to the public. This also could create arguments about where the line of classifying disability is drawn.
Why are these people abusing the system and what does it say about how Americans view disabilities? What should be done to fix this?
