State law provides some regulation of the types of wild animals that individuals may possess, keep as a pet, take for game hunting, sell, or propagate. Local governments may impose additional restrictions. Check with your city or county for more information about the laws in place in your area.
Sometimes wildlife can be dangerous or harmful to humans. Texas law addresses certain species of wild animals that can become a nuisance to humans and sets out ways that people can mitigate the dangers of these species.
