It's a crime to state your animal is "Service Animal" when it's not - Mary Cummins California

California, service animal, penal code, 365.7, fraudulent representation, ada, americans with disabilities act, fine, jail, crime, 
I saw this sign in a Ralphs supermarket. They had problems with people passing off regular animals as legal certified "service animals." The problem is service animals are highly trained to be calm and assist their disabled handler. Some people just want to be able to bring their dog in the store. They lie and claim the animal is a "service animal" or "therapy animal" so they can bring them in the store. In the past some of these dogs attacked others in the store. The stores of course don't want to be liable for irresponsible owners and their dogs.

GUIDE DOG—FRAUDULENT REPRESENTATION AS MISDEMEANOR

CA PENAL CODE SECTION 365.7

"[a] Any person who, knowingly and fraudulently represents himself or herself, through verbal or written notice, to be the owner or trainer of any canine licensed as, to be qualified as, or identified as, a guide, signal, or service dog, as defined in subdivisions (d), (e), and (f) of Section 365.5 and paragraph (6) of subdivision (b) of Section 54.1 of the Civil Code, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding six months, by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000) or by both that fine and imprisonment.

[b] As used in this section, "owner" means any person who owns a guide, signal, or service dog, or who is authorized by the owner to use the guide, signal, or service dog. Leg.H 1994 ch.1257."

This great article by Merritt Clifton goes into the difference between "service dog" and "therapy dog." It also mentions infamous fake "service dog" Mimi the pitbull who attacked many people including a pregnant woman and her baby. Mimi the fake "service dog" pitbull owned by Steven Woods then even faker "disable military veteran" was represented by no other than infamous "animal rights" attorney Randy Turner of Fort Worth, Texas.
