TPWD Game Warden Field Notes

The following are excerpts from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife Department law enforcement reports.

"Have We Got a Deal for You" A TPWD Marine Theft Investigator completed an investigation involving a Mesquite-area insurance agent. The man claimed he got a deal on a 1999 Four Winns when he submitted the title application to TPWD. During the investigation, when the warden investigator explained it was a third-degree felony to falsify a government document, the agent remembered the "other" $10,000 he paid for the vessel. Two citations were issued and $623.43 in taxes and penalties was collected.

On the Wing The special white-winged dove season opened Sept. 6-7 in three south Texas counties. Game wardens filed a total of 272 cases in those three counties.

Free at Last A Lubbock County game warden received a call from the Lubbock International Airport Police about a man who had tried to smuggle a Texas horned lizard through security. The warden responded and found that the man had squeezed the horned lizard into an empty water bottle and concealed it in his luggage for his trip back to California. The horned lizard was safely released back into the wild, and the Californian was educated about Texas' desire to keep these threatened species at home.
