Facebook posting prompts investigation into alligator killing in Bastrop County A man who boasted on Facebook that he killed an 11˝-foot alligator in Central Texas is a prime suspect in the illegal shooting, Texas wildlife authorities said last week. The San Antonio Express-News reports the gator's body was discovered near a creek in Bastrop County about a week ago, said Fred Ensinger, a game warden with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The alligator's size is an "anomaly," Ensinger said, noting that it's nearly twice as big as gators rarely seen so far from the Texas Gulf Coast. Amos Cooper, a state alligator expert, estimated it probably at least 20 to 30 years old and weighed between 500 to 800 pounds, given its length and girth. Click here for the full article.

Farmers, ranchers along border offering personal stories of impact on website The Texas Wildlife Association supports Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples and his efforts to bring attention and public awareness to the growing problem of border violence and the impact this activity is having on Texas farmers and ranchers. The website allows farmers, ranchers, and landowners along the border a venue to chronicle their stories. “With, the Texas Department of Agriculture documents the true stories of those who supply our food under the constant danger of criminals who have crossed our border illegally. Through this website, I implore the federal government to enforce our laws and secure our nation’s borders. We are at war, and our federal government must answer its call of duty to protect its citizens and our national security,” writes Commissioner Staples on the website. TWA recognizes the sensitivity of the website and its content, and TWA joins Commissioner Staples in denouncing website comments that are inappropriate and encourage vigilantism.
