Question:

How did Saint Peter punish the lady?

Answer:

He punished the lady by changing her into a woodpecker. Saint Peter put a curse on the woman, telling her she was too selfish to live in a human form, having food, shelter and warm fire. He added that in the future, she would have to build her nest as the birds do and get scanty food by boring all day in the hard, dry wood.
