A Bexar County game warden was called by Alamo security about a woman walking a white-tailed fawn on a leash.

When she arrived on the scene, the warden questioned her about picking up the fawn on the side of the road.

The woman said she came to the Alamo to take Fourth of July family photos.

The game warden tried to explain the state law forbidding possession of game animals, but she would not listen and became very upset.

The fawn was seized and taken to a licensed Texas Parks and Wildlife rehabilitator and charges are pending.

Tourists were educated at the Alamo about attempting to take game animals as pets.
