Bus Driver Denies Entry to Service Dog and Veteran

After four tours of duty with the Marines, Daniel Wright uses a service dog to help him with his injured left arm and to help him cope with post-traumatic stress disorder. But when he went to board a New Jersey Transit bus recently, the driver closed the door in his face. Wright, a Purple Heart recipient, thinks the driver might not have believed him that Tank was a service dog because he’s a Pit Bull. He was able to convince a second bus driver on the route that Tank was a legitimate service dog. New Jersey Transit officials say they’re looking into the incident, and that service animals are allowed on all of their modes of transportation. — Read it at People Pets
