I saw this today.
it makes me laugh and cry at the same time. mmmm....paradox.
An 11 year old saves a woodpecker from being eaten by the family cat. They take it to Lowe's while buying a cage to nurse it and get stopped by a Fish & Wildlife officer in the store. The officer tells them it is endangered and transporting it is illegal.
They take it home and release. Then a few days get fined for transporting an endangered species.
Moral of the story: A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. With the exchange rate a bush is $250 dollars.
