A Texas man is in hot water with the law after cooking and eating a dove that had flown against the side of his home, broke its neck and died.
“This is the same bird that hunter’s pay just buckets of money to go out and shoot,” he said. “They take their time… and I just got one for free?”
Adams decided to do what he thought any aficionado of wild game would do in his shoes — cook the dove for dinner.
“I have never had such fresh meat before. I had meat that had come to me that was fairly fresh that had slaughtered the week before but never like that day,” Adams recalled.
But according to Texas Parks and Wildlife spokesman Steven Lightfoot, that was the wrong thing to do.
