A park district officer issued a $50 ticket to a woman for not using a dog park permit after reading her Facebook post. The only problem, aside from privacy issues, was that the officer misunderstood her comment.
Will County Forest Preserve District officials said they would "rescind a ticket" that was given because of that Facebook comment made by a Bolingbrook, Illinois, woman, according to the Chicago Tribune. The unnamed woman apparently posted as a response to an outbreak of kennel cough at Whalon Lake Dog Park:
"I was feeling bad that I haven’t bought a pass and been bringing Ginger there but I’m pretty glad I haven’t. So not going to worry about it until later. I hope all the doggies get better soon."
A forest preserve employee forwarded the comment to the protection officer who understood the comment to mean the woman wasn't using a permit at the dog park.
