After seeing some photographs on Vaccarella's Facebook page (she was obviously reported by somebody who claims to be her “friend”), two officers from the Department of Fish and Wildlife showed up at her door. Vaccarella breathed a sigh of relief. She was happy to be rid of the squirrels and glad they would be rehabilitated by professionals. A few days later, however, she received summons in the mail for harboring wild animals.
No good deed goes unpunished, or so they say. The officers didn't even tell her that this would happen, they simply told her that she cannot keep the squirrels.
“So I go to court and the judge tells me it’s up to $1,000 fine, up to six months in jail,” Vacarella said. “What is this world coming to? We teach our children to be kind and compassionate and then we end up in the court system.” I don’t know if this is federal or state law or both but to use it in this way is criminal.
The National Wildlife Foundation and others have offered to pay for her lawyer and court costs when she returns to court on January 27th.
What kind of example does this set for America's children? How can parents raise their kids to be compassionate human beings if the government is willing to punish those who practice compassion? Mrs. Vaccarella is urging people to join her in court on January 27 at 8pm.
Government is corrupted and incompetent!
