A citizen of the sort who is up at 4:41 a.m. files a 311 report about the situation on Medford Street in Charlestown:
Maybe not a rodent, but it looked like a capybara hanging out on Medford St.
Note: Yes, we just used our editorial prerogative to name the alleged Charlestown capybara.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
It should be Carlos
But just remember, capybaras eat their own poo. And when they're nuzzling up to you, they're probably also scent-marking you.

Yes, they're cute and maybe I'm in the minority here, but pets should not be taken into stores--especially those that have/serve food. Although I realize it's never enforced, only service pets are supposed to be allowed inside any store serving or selling food.
Do you know the specific code?
I understood that they're prohibited in businesses that serve food to eat there, like, with seating, but can be brought into ones that don't have seating. I know I've heard of coffee shops and ice cream shops allowing pets (ew) because they don't have seating inside.
I'm a huge animal love and I agree that animals aside from service animals shouldn't be in most businesses, but I think the health code only prohibits it if there's foodservice with seating. Does it vary by municipality?
live animals may not be

In countries where people
In countries where people routinely bring their dogs to restaurants, what problems do they see as a result?
Having the same kitchen
Having the same kitchen prepare dog food and human food would violate local health code. Code might be different in other countries.
