Texas has been and will continue to be the state anyone can come to and slaughter as many animals as you can afford to kill. Pick a snake up off the road even to just move it to safety and you are a criminal in The Great State of Texas. In addition, the law in Texas allows for animals on the road to be "rescued". I found this out when talking to Meagan in Austin, but if a game warden sees you pick up the animal - they will cite you on the spot. The difficulty with this is that while Austin tells you this is legal without and permit, you cannot supeona anyone from Austin to testify on your behalf due to the distance. So you are left with local wardens making up the laws as they see fit and at the mercy of either a judge or jury not knowing enough to make a rational decision on your guilt or innocence.
