Eddie your game warden informed you with a little false information, their are things you can do to protect your animals if one gets out, exotics are just like cattle correct their your property, If you put a tag in their ear that is legible from a distance that identifies them in a way that you can tie that tag back to you or your ranch. For example in my breeding pens all my tags have my brand on them with a number. I have all tags an what animal they are on documented on a spread sheet. Now granted anything that doesn't have a tag like new baby's or a tag gets ripped out their is no way to identify that they are yours and they get out they are fair game. Whitetail are a different story they belong to the state even though you pay for them if they get out they are fair game an legally you can't go dart a whitetail an put it back in your place.
