A man from Arizona named David Keller successfully registered a beehive as a service animal to prove a point: too many people are faking their need for support.
Keller says last month he saw a service dog that he thought wasn't acting right.
He says he could easily tell it was not a service animal because the dog was pulling its owner through a parking lot on its leash.
So Keller decided to take a stand.
He went to a website called "USAServiceDogRegistration.com" and successfully registered a picture of a beehive as a service animal.
According to a professional service animal trainer, anyone can go pay for a piece of paper for registry on one of those websites but it doesn't mean anything.
They say training is how you can actually tell an animal is a legitimate service animal or not.
As it turns out, the animal doesn't actually need to be registered anywhere.
And there are a few rules: federal law says only dogs and miniature horses can be used as service animals.
