Save a baby woodpecker from certain death...

receive fine of $535

Solution: Cut funding to the obviously bloated department of U.S. Fish and Wildlife. Their heads and sense of importance are simply too big.

"Unfortunately, the citation was processed unintentionally despite our office's request to cancel the ticket. The Service has contacted Ms. Capo to express our regret. The Service is also sending Ms. Capo a formal letter explain the clerical error and confirming that ticket should never have been issued.

This misunderstanding was the result of a Service inquiry into possible violations of federal wildlife law. In particular the Service is responsible for the protection of all federally listed migratory birds. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries did not participate in the inquiry."

Yes let's shut down the whole portion of the federal government most closely associated with the stewardship of nature's fauna because of a clerical error that was apologized for and dismissed.

Less overreacting please!

Well, in some cases the department of fish and wildlife is beneficial, although I'm not sure they can do any better than we can by just being responsible.

I live in Fredericksburg, Virginia where this took place and it isn't getting headlines here, which is predominantly a Conservative Republican area.

If any funding needs to be cut, it would probably help somewhat by cutting the salary of that one overzealous fish and wildlife employee. Fire her and save the government some money.

If the Cappo family had instead of being apparently sincere people and instead had been capturing and selling endangered and protected animals then the FWS officer's actions could have lead to arrests and criminal justice.

The officer was right to subsequently file a report on the encounter with the family, especially since she apparently indicated there was no need for a fine and followup. It was only through unfortunate clerical error that the family was troubled.

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
