A woman in suburban Bridgeview was fined for having bird feeders in her backyard. But that's not the weird part. The weird part is that the fine was for $750. Outraged, she called up the mayor, who looked into the situation and ended up voiding the fine. The woman did agree, though, to remove two of the three feeders.
