FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (WUSA) -- Eleven-year-old aspiring veterinarian, Skylar Capo, sprang into action the second she learned that a baby woodpecker in her Dad's backyard was about to be eaten by the family cat.

It is bad enough the number of sites carrying the non-story and the number of people spreading it either because they don't read the article or because they see easy votes. But at least most places give the smaller lie saying she "may" face fines and jail. To say she was fined $535 is shameful. The headline is FALSE. She was not fined. There was no punishment of any sort. A single individual - not the government got overzealous and gave zero-tolerance to a law. When things got heated up and others such as the agent's superior looked at what happened and they voided it all out.
