Posted 12:13 PM 10/10/2013 : Woman cited for not having disabled cat on a leash
(WESH) Does a cat in a wheelchair also need to be on a leash? Apparently, the answer is yes.
A Melbourne woman found that out the hard way when she received over $200 in fines Tuesday.
Pooh Bear's front legs work fine, but his back legs don't work at all. His owner Yvonne Steel has replaced those back legs with wheels. She got the little device on eBay and she calls it a wheelchair.
She takes Pooh Bear for a walk every day in a grassy area next to Wells Park. He needs the exercise for his back legs.
Brevard County Animal Services issued her $230 in tickets for failing to have Pooh Bear and McKenzie, a Chihuahua, on a leash, and for a rabies shot violation.
