Woof you, cabbies

"Some Muslim taxi drivers are refusing to carry blind and disabled passengers with guide dogs - because their religion tells them the animals are 'unclean'.

"Brisbane's Yellow Cab Company has been forced to sack drivers over their conduct towards passengers with assistance dogs.

"Bill Parker, general manager of the firm, said the behaviour would not be tolerated and penalties will be imposed if drivers disobeyed."

"Unclean," are they? These wonderful, selfless creatures who give so much joy and independence to their owners?

Good on ya, Mr. Parker.
