A Bird in the Hand...

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.

  1. it is illegal to try to save the life of an endangered species- leave them alone and let them die. that's the moral I got out of it anyway.
