Woman with “Service Kangaroo” asked to leave McDonalds

A Wisconsin woman left McDonalds angrily after another patron called the cops on her. Diana Moyer, brought her kangaroo named Jimmy into the establishment.

Police said they got a call about Moyer and responded to the scene. According to Associated Press, when they arrived, Moyer had the baby kangaroo wrapped in a blanket and tucked into a child’s car seat.

Moyer said that the kangaroo was a service animal, and is helping Moyer get over the news of a letter she received from her doctor. Her husband, Larry says that the animal is not a service animal, but just a coping mechanism she is using to help comfort herself as she is battling cancer.

Larry told officials that, “It’s a friend for her, a companion, and we have a little car seat and stroller. He’s just a little guy, but you can touch him and pet him,” Larry Moyer said. “Of course it does cause a lot of attention because you don’t see a kangaroo every day, especially one out of the cage.”

When McDonald’s learned about the incident they released a statement saying, “We are aware a customer called the authorities regarding this incident, which then investigated and took the steps to resolve the situation. Our policy is to make our restaurants accessible to all customers, including those with disabilities and special needs,” which sounds like they were ok with Moyer bringing in the animal.

Officials say that this is not the first time they have received complaints about the couple’s unusual pets, but went on to state that they pose no problem to the community.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, says there are no laws forbidding this type of animal as a pet, the owner’s just have to keep documentation of veterinary visits ready at hand.
