Charges Filed On Processor/Taxidermist For Waste of Meat


Henderson County Game Wardens recently received several calls on a local processor/taxidermist in the City of Log Cabin, Texas. The calls indicated that numerous unprocessed deer had possibly been allowed to spoil, while in his possession. During the course of the investigation, 19 deer were found lying in the violators yard after his walk-in cooler was removed from the property, after being sold. Further investigation revealed a total of 24 deer that had been allowed to reach a condition where they were no longer safe for human consumption.

24 cases for Waste of Game – White-tailed Deer were filed. Thanks to the following agencies for their assistance: Henderson County Sheriff’s Office, Log Cabin PD and Log Cabin Public Works Dept.

It is a shame that a person would waste the meat. We are happy the charges were filed and that this so called meat processor will not do this again.
