According to the press release, the fawn was seized at the time and taken to a licensed Texas Parks & Wildlife rehabilitator, and charges against the woman are pending.
The game warden explained to the woman that possession of game animals is forbidden by state law. It was reported that the woman became “very upset” upon learning this.
