An Illinois woman was issued a $50 fine last week after a forest preserve protection officer took her Facebook comment to mean she was breaking the law — by using a dog park without a permit.  The woman commented on a post from a local dog owner about dogs in the area experiencing kennel cough after visiting the Whalon Lake Dog Park. Someone sent the comment to an officer, who contacted the woman and issued her a ticket for using the dog park without a permit. The officer sent her a letter stating she had knowingly entered a dog park without a valid 2014 permit, citing her Facebook comment as proof.
