Florida Man May Face Eviction Over Emotional Support Squirrel

A Florida man may get the boot after his emotional support squirrel was found out.

Ryan Boylan has Brutis to deal with anxiety from a car accident he had years ago.

However, Island Walk Condominiums says the squirrel has got to go because she is putting the other residents at risk.

Former board member Sherry Arfa says:

"If it was a gerbil or something that your grandkid had hiding under the bed, I’m sure that would be fine, but a squirrel is a wild animal.”

Boylan says he fell in love with his squirrel friend after nursing her back to health after Hurricane Matthew.

Brutis has total run of the apartment, and even perches herself up on his ceiling fan.

"She's just like an inside cat. She just walks around and hides pecans and hazelnuts which are her two favorites.

There’s just no way I would give her up.”

Boylan says he had shown management a doctor's note that says he suffers from his anxiety, but the association is calling bull.

The board only discovered Brutis when a dog chased her up a tree and served Boylan his eviction papers.

If she's not gone in a month, he is out.
