Margaret Burnyeat of Vancouver, allegedly hired a crew to cut 23 trees on two lots she owned. There were two problems though. First, trees are protected by local laws requiring that you obtain a permit to down trees of a certain size, and secondly, she ony had permits to chop down two of them. Whoops.
Fortunately for the city — and unfortunately for Margaret — a Google Street View vehicle swung around the neighborhood that day and captured images of the crew and truck they used. Now she faces some hefty fines.
