Bailey v. Smith, No. 03-17-00703-CV, 2019 WL 2707967 (Tex. App. June 28, 2019)
This is a dispute between commercial deer breeders and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (the Department) over the ownership of captive-bred whitetail deer. Ken Bailey and Bradley Peterson each hold a deer breeder’s permit issued by the Department authorizing them “to possess live breeder deer in captivity” and to “engage in the business of breeding breeder deer.” Peterson and Bailey sued the Department and several of its officials to establish that breeder deer are or became private property and to invalidate Department rules requiring breeders to test for chronic wasting disease. The Department responded that breeder deer are wild animals and therefore “property of the people of this state.” See id. § 1.011(a). The district court granted the Department’s partial plea to the jurisdiction and motion for summary judgment, denied Peterson’s cross-motion, and awarded the Department its attorneys’ fees. The court affirmed.
