Florida man fights to keep emotional support squirrel

A FLORIDA man who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder is fighting to keep his "emotional support" squirrel which he rescued from Hurricane Matthew previous year. After Hurricane Matthew past year, Boylan rescued the female squirrel and while he has cared for her since then, it wasn't until July that he obtained a doctor's note prescribing him to obtain an emotional support animal.

He rescued her past year after Hurricane Matthew.

"Ever since then, I mean, oh my god, I can't imagine not being around her", Boylan said, according to WFLA-TV.

But he could lose her.

Management at Island Walk Condominiums found out about the rodent one day when Boylan took her outside.

The PTSD sufferer claims he needs the squirrel for emotional and mental health support following his diagnosis after a auto accident which left him with several herniated disks in his lower back.

Despite these claims, the board's stance remains firm: If Boylan doesn't give up Brutis by the end of the month, he may be evicted.

The condo board at Island Walk Condominiums, however, said exotic animals are not allowed.

"She's just like an inside cat". He had the Pinellas County, Fla., Office of Human Rights submit a letter to the association stating that the Fair Housing Act protects emotional-support animals.

Boylans doctor, Scott Murphy, who has cared for Boylan since 2004, wrote a prescription report for an emotional support animal for his patient who suffers from several herniated discs in his lower back following a auto accident.

"Due to this emotional disability, Ryan Boylan has certain limitations coping with what would otherwise be considered normal, but significant day to day situations", according to the letter obtained by the station. Many people have traditional domesticated animals like service dogs or even cats for emotional support. "To help alleviate these challenges and to enhance his day to day functionality, I have prescribed Ryan to obtain emotional support animal (s)". Arfa also said she feels Brutis should be free.

Boylan is adamant that giving up the animal is not an option.

"I don't know if he's discriminated against", former board member told WFLA.

Boylan's case is pending.
