Witnessed at the Alamo in San Antonio with a fawn on a leash, a Texas woman could soon face charges for possession of a game animal. Alamo security contacted the Bexar County game warden when they saw the woman had a baby white-tailed deer on the end of a dog leash at the historic site on June 30.

According to a report by NBC DFW, the woman in question told the game warden that she had picked the fawn up from along the side of the road and had wanted to take Fourth of July photos with it. The Bexar County game officer explained to her that a state law exists forbidding the possession of game animals, after which she became “very upset” and uncooperative, according to a news release by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

The fawn is now safely being cared for at a licensed rehabilitator for the TPWD, and charges are pending for the woman in question. In the meantime, tourists to the historic site here in the Texas Hill Country picked up some free education regarding the care of game animals within the state, along with an additional bit of drama to their day.
