U.S. Fish & Wildlife Threatens Child Samaritan

Eleven-year-old Skylar Capo rescued a baby woodpecker in her Dad's backyard that was about to be eaten by the family cat.

Driving home with her mom later in the day, they stopped at a nearby Lowe's - protecting the bird from the heat of the car, they brought the tiny bird inside the store.

Once inside, the pair encountered another shopper from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.  "She was really nervous. She was shaking. Then she pulled out a badge," said Capo. The woman began to lecture the pair on the Migratory Bird Laws.

Shaken a bit, after returning home, the little girl released the bird, and hoped for the best.  Two weeks later, the women from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service showed up at Capo's front door. She was accompanied by a Virginia state trooper.

Outraged, Capo refused to accept a citation, but was later mailed a notice to appear in U.S. District Court for unlawfully taking a migratory bird.  Capo was slapped with a $535 fine.

After making the incident public, the Feds backed off, and issued a public retraction of the citation and jail threat.

One more citizen threatened under Il Regime Di Obama.  No one is safe, no good deed goes unpunished.
