Wisconsin woman kicked out of McDonald’s over kangaroo ‘service animal’

Published

A Wisconsin woman was kicked out of McDonald’s last week after another customer complained about her therapy pet – a kangaroo.

Diana Moyer brought the baby kangaroo about 11:40 a.m. Friday into the McDonald’s in Beaver Dam, reported The Daily Cardinal.

Another customer called police to report the animal, saying it was not appropriate or safe for the kangaroo to be in the fast food restaurant.

Moyer claimed the kangaroo was a service animal and showed police a note from her doctor to back her assertion.

But officers told her that other customers felt unsafe with the animal there and asked her to leave.

Moyer’s husband admitted Tuesday to WISN-TV that the kangaroo was not a service animal but was a therapy pet for his wife as she battles cancer.

Therapy pets aren’t protected under disability laws, which allows dogs or miniature horses that are specifically trained to help disabled people.

Moyer and her husband keep five kangaroos at their home outside of Beaver Dam, where they moved following complaints about their exotic pets.

He said they often took “Jimmy,” the youngest kangaroo, out in public.

No citations were issued in the incident.

Having let Johnson throw out several scenarios and try and spread the blame around, Todd, finally cut in to say, "You seem to blame this on everybody but the president. It was the president’s actions."

"You’re blaming everybody else for the reason we’re in this situation, other than the president," Todd continued. "Isn’t the president’s own behavior, which raised all of these yellow and red flags, isn’t is that why we’re here?”

Published

On Sunday morning House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) attempted to blow off questions by CNN's Jake Tapper over whether President Donald Trump was trying to intimidate former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch with a tweet during her testimony, choosing instead to attack committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for wanting to impeach the president.

Following a long interview where the State of the Union host had to correct the Ohio Republican's assertions multiple times -- with Tapper once flatly stating "That's not true" -- the CNN host asked about Trump's tweets that were immediately characterized as witness intimidation.
