TPWD Game Warden Field Notes
The following are excerpts from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife Department law enforcement reports.
Looking for Pickles and Ice Cream? A Travis County Warden got a call about a different kind of trespasser in Austin. A full-grown, pregnant doe deer had run straight thru an open door in the Central Market Store located at the Westgate Shopping Center. The warden roped the deer and with the help of the other officers, she taped the legs together and successfully transported the mother-to-be to a nearby greenbelt and released her back to habitat that was much more to her liking. No one knows why the deer ran into the store; maybe the Mom-to-be just had a special craving.
