Texas Game Warden Field Notes

Filed under: Misc — Freddie Keel @ 6:57 am

  • On June 26, Game Wardens Rick Snitkin and Randall Brown responded to a Jet Ski accident on Lake LBJ involving a subject who had attempted to do a back flip from the watercraft.

Unfortunately, the subject hit his head on the Jet Ski during the attempt.

The collision rendered him unconscious and face down in the water.

A witness to the event responded to the scene and retrieved the victim from the water.

The victim was flown by EMS for treatment.

  • Game Wardens Lerrin Williams, Jim Lindeman, and Cody Hatfield responded to the scene of a boating accident on Lake LBJ on June 27.

The victims were operating personal watercraft too close to one another. The front Jet Ski  stopped abruptly, and turned and the following Jet SKi  crashed into it.

Two people, both of whom had leg injuries, were transported by EMS.

  • Harris County Game Warden Kevin Malonson was patrolling the San Jacinto River June 24 for water safety and fishing regulation compliance.

As Warden Malonson approached a vessel with a fisherman aboard, he was given an extensive welcome and thanks for the great job that state game wardens do.

After checking the water safety equipment, Malonson inquired several times whether the angler had caught any fish.

The fisherman finally stated that he caught a few.

Upon inspecting the angler’s cooler, Malonson discovered four undersized black bass.

“Mr. Fisherman” stated that he has never violated any game laws, but the reason he did so this time was because a friend of his, whom happened to be a preacher, wanted some fish.

Case pending.

  • Jasper County Game Warden Justin Eddins received information June 23 about an alligator that had been taken illegally.

With the assistance from the constable, officers stopped the suspect’s vehicle and Warden Eddins discovered a 5-foot alligator, dead, behind the seat.

Charges and civil restitution are pending
