Tenant says eviction over squirrel is nuts
A TENANT says he has been threatened with eviction by landlords who have banned him from living with a SQUIRREL.
Ryan Boylan, 40, said they have told him to give up his “emotional support” squirrel or face being kicked out.
They claim he is violating the terms of his lease by keeping an exotic animal, but Boylan insists he needs the rodent to help him recover from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Boylan saved the squirrel – named Brutis – as Hurricane Matthew travelled up the coast of Florida last year.
He even has a doctor’s note which explains he has trouble with certain situations and prescribes an emotional support animal “to help alleviate these challenges”.
