Sixty-five-year-old Joie Henney, of York Haven, says his registered emotional support animal named Wally likes to snuggle and give hugs, despite being a 5-foot-long alligator. Philly.com reports Henney says he received approval from his doctor to use Wally as his emotional support animal after not wanting to go on medication for depression.

I had one once. Thing sat in that tank constantly staring at me. ALWAYS. In there he sat plotting my demise and his looming campaign to take over the planet and enslave mankind.

Only critter I ever had that gave me the absolute conviction that they're no creature that should be ever kept as "pets" / in captivity; to the sort of tune of questioning the morality of pet-keeping itself. Just a 'whole different animal' than se Savannah Monitors or Pythons. Although I've been told Nile Monitors also fall into that True Wild category.

It’s weirdly cute....
I’ll stick with my big fluffy dog.

I hope the old fellow doesn’t get himself hurt, that thing could literally rip his face off 😕

What did people do before all these support animals?

But on a side note, when I was recovering from surgery in the hospital a few years ago they brought in a therapy dog.
I swear that dog had a smile and it did make me feel better! ha

That hissing noise is just his way of saying hello.

Emotional support. Mental illness, participation trophies, safe spaces, snow flakes, pre-chewed food? This nit-whit takes up space people with real illness's could be using. It's not sad, it's stupid and enabling. The way these fools are coddled is FUBAR.

A 5 foot alligator is surprisingly smaller than the salt water crocodile i was picturing this guy snuggling.

I don't see anything worse than losing a finger or two happening here.

Ha!

I mean, I hope it doesn't turn on him because he does look genuinely happy.

I know my dog makes me happier and can tell when I'm in a poor mood.

I believe in support animals to an extent. I believe they do really help people. However, nowadays people pay $70 to register their dog and slap a vest on them. That is an insult to the people who actually need the animals and whose animals go through the proper training.

Again, some people just ruin everything for others.

No just dogs. All kinds of filthy animals.

However, I think the blame should go to these online registries that make money "certifying" that your hideous stinking animal is necessary for you to maintain emotional control. It's a scam to make money. (Where have a heard that before? Oh... that's right. EVERYWHERE!)

I have an emotional support Burmese. She likes to give hugs too. That creaking/cracking noise you hear is just my ribs giving way.

Seems like a temporary solution. They grow.

I agree the emotional support nonsense has gotten well out of hand. That said, pets give their owners joy, regardless of what type of pet it is. Had a friend in high school who owned tarantulas. She'd sit watching TV with one of the bastards wandering around her arms and shoulders. It brought her joy so...

Dogs, cats, gators - when are they going to extend these laws to inanimate objects?

I'd feel much better out in public if I could take my Emotional Support Martini with me.

This is exactly what people were telling you would happen with the the new abortion law in New York. Subjective health, subjective laws, subjective science with subjective reasoning to an individual guarantees the inevitability of these things.

Its not the danger he is putting himself in, he can roll around with naked in his pond for all care, its him taking it out in public like its some kitten or something. If a chimpanzee youve raised for 19 years will rip your face imagine as this alligator gets older and larger.
