The fecal matter deposited on the trees by wildlife probably helped restore her natural intestinal bacterial flora.

She said: "I ate hazel bark first and it felt like a dozen ferrets fighting in my stomach."

So at first, her bark was worse than her blight.

BronyMedic: OhioUGrad: ...and doesn't have the side effects

It's a pharmacoactive substance. It will have side effects.

Those aren't side effects, those are added benefits! Like a prize at the bottom of a cereal box.

AbbeySomeone: Diogenes Teufelsdrockh: FTA: The mum of two began cutting bark off trees in a park...

Dumbass damages public property, harms and possibly kills trees or at least leaves them looking ugly like the one in the picture impinging on the rights of the people not to have a nutter running around cutting trees and leaving scars at eye level...

Well deserved lawsuit/fine time coming right up.

/Obviously, she was too stupid to just take a branch where it wouldn't have caused lasting damage.
//Go cutting park trees around here and earn a free ride and an evening out with a law enforcement officer.

Vandalism charges aside she is also ingesting any type of chemical that the trees have been treated with.

Around here, government types in the parks get a little riled up when dogs get too near the trees. Dogs are only supposed to sprinkle poles, posts, and other approved locations. Their natural water is not properly balanced, or something. But this lady must be a relative of Bear Grylls, so it's all good.

God put everything on this earth for a purpose. It's up to us to find its proper use. Now, I myself eat c*ck, for medicinal reasons only.
