Tampa Man Faces Eviction Due to His Unique Support Animal

Posted: Updated:

A man from Tampa cannot imagine being separated from his furry friend.
 
The man got an eviction notice, telling him to choose between his "support squirrel" or his condo.
 
Ryan Boylan and Brutis, his emotional support squirrel – that's right squirrel – are inseparable. He rescued her last year after Hurricane Matthew.
 
But Boylan could lose her. Property management at Island Way discovered Brutis, and exotic animals are not allowed. They say Boylan never told them about the squirrel. 
 
He was sent a notice to give up the squirrel or be evicted.
 
Boylan contacted the Office of Human Rights, claiming discrimination, and they sent a letter to the association on his behalf, stating the Fair Housing Act protects emotional support animals.
 
Condo officials say, it's a liability if something happens.
