Tad Tadesse told the Examiner that he and his service pit bull Rosie have been kicked off Muni transit systems more than 20 times. “Muni has sent me apologies in the past, but they need to do more. If I’m being harassed this much for having my service dog with me on public transit I’m sure other people are having issues, too,” he wrote on the petition’s site.
