A man wrote to the state of Texas asking about the legality of killing Bigfoot, should he ever run into it while hunting. He was referring to a specific statute that defined which animals were legal to hunt and kill in Texas.
The official from Texas explained that the statute refers to which animals are considered game animals, a specific list of animals that are legal to hunt. The man's fear is that because Bigfoot wasn't included on the list, he couldn't kill it.
Texas responded by saying that the state only defines non-game animals, as animals that are native to Texas and that are not protected. If there's an animal that is not native to Texas and it's not an endangered species, then it's fair game.
This means that because Bigfoot is not officially recognized as an endangered species, you could theoretically kill it while in Texas with no repercussions. Let us know in the comments if you've ever hunted and killed Bigfoot!
