ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) – Misrepresenting service animals has become a growing concern in recent years.
It prompted the state legislature to pass a new law and Olmsted County officials are making sure people are aware of the changes.
The new law went into effect back on August 1st of 2018, making it illegal to misrepresent a service animal in public buildings.
In an effort to be pro-active about notifying the public, Olmsted County posted signs outside each of it’s county buildings.
