The Campaign For DA

Big Government 2.0


And that may be one of the funniest law enforcement photos of all time.

Side note: Someone want to speculate about this "crime"? I thought it might be that they thought the deer was killed a few days after deer season ended but Maverick County is in the South Zone.

Edit: You can't sell deer meat? Can you give it away?

You can't sell deer meet. You can eat it yourself or give it away but you cannot sell it.

Mislabeling semantics? Chorizo is traditionally a pork product.
The real crime here is that the game wardens should know the name is whitetail, not white tailed

The "crime" is that a person is not allowed to just shoot deer after deer after deer for commercial purposes. That's what farms and ranches are for. You end up with no deer pretty darn quick. If someone wants to do that, they need to get into farming, instead of considering other private and public property and animals to constitute their own unlimited personal stock, i.e. the great plains when Buffalo went from millions to almost gone.

It is a funny photo. It's like the great white hunter-gathering law enforcers have triumphed yet again. I'm surprised they didn't "confiscate" the perps car.

Maybe they donated the sausage to today's RTG...she looks malnourished.

Yes, you can give it away. No, you can't sell it as a private citizen.

It was just an oppurtunity for the game wardens to satisfy their sausage loving desires.

You cannot sell wild venison. Or other wild game in Texas.

The state owns the wild game, hence the regulatory authority over it.

Mr. Green, we are here to discuss that chorizo sausage you have for sale. By the way, didn't you used to have a 21 pound cat?

11:02 says, "The state owns the wild game, hence the regulatory authority over it."

Eh, wrong answer- the people own the wild game.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

Sure 12:53... I know that technically THE PEOPLE own it. The Legal Code of the TPWD says as much. However, that same TPWD has been granted the legal the authority from the state to regulate, protect, and manage THE PEOPLES' deer.

Other than avoiding legal responsibility when wild game damage something, I am not sure what distinction is made between State Owned vs People Owned.

Deer should only cross where deer crossing signs are present. I sued the state and my city over this once. I sued the city to move their deer crossing signs to where the speed limit was lower, so it was safer for the deer to cross. I then sued the state because their deer didn't obey the new crossing location and continued to use the old, unsafe location. This caused me a great deal of emotional distress.

But was it a doe, a deer, a female deer?

I agree with Rage. Deer should know or be taught that they are to cross the roads where the State put the crossing signs. If the deer can't read the crossing signs, then the State should teach the deer how to read. These uneducated, illiterate deer cause me a great deal of emotional distress as well. Soon they'll start wearing their pants so low that their underwear show or spray painting graffiti on highways and street signs. Them damn stupid deer.
