My niece lives in Louisiana, New Iberia to be exact.
She is sight impared and has a guide dog...
She went out to dinner at a restaurant & was asked to leave because the dog wasn't allowed in and 'did you see the 'no dogs allowed' sign on the door?!
Annie informes them that she's a certified guide dog and she's most certainly allowed in, she even keeps a copy of the state law concerning guide dogs. guess what the restaurant people did... they CALLED 911 to have my niece and her dog removed!! The cops show up, and tell her she needs to either take the dog outside or leave the premesis. Annie tries to show them the written law & the cop says "I don't need you to show me that" !!! What's wrong with these people?????????????? They actually threatened to arrest her! At that point the rest. people allow her to stay & eat but she felt so sick she just went home.
what recourses do people in these situations have? who should she contact? she's on her way to the police station to tell them they're breaking the law! lolol. I told her to watch herself before they DO arrest her! Just wanted to know if anyone knows who she can protest to..this is about the 3rd time this has happened to her..including a hospital!!
