A man from Shelton (Washington) who uses a snake as a service animal traveled to (the Washington State capitol) Olympia on Tuesday to lobby against a bill that would narrow the definition of an aid animal.

The measure opposed by Daniel Green would change the state law on service animals to meet federal standards, narrowing the definition to only dogs and miniature horses. But Green says he’s trained his snake to hug him when it feels an epileptic seizure coming to avoid injuries.
