Several states crack down on dog service fraud

Not that this has much to do with technology, other than the fact I read it online, but it is a topic that seems to be garnering more and more attention:  Service Animals.  I’m sure one or two of you have seen folks walk into a restaurant or sports grill or any public establishment with their dog with them.  And when stopped, they tell the property management it is their service animal.  This article discusses potential changes coming to how service animals are dealt with.
