From the Brewster County Sheriff’s Facebook page
“We would like to remind everyone to respect private property boundaries, and be on the lookout for those who are not. If you observe anyone trespassing, please document as many details as possible of both the vehicle (make, model, color, license plate, etc.) and the suspect(s). Photographs are also helpful for identifying perpetrators for prosecution. Sheriff Dodson will have extra patrols in various areas throughout the county, including Terlingua Ranch, during hunting season. If you observe any suspicious activity, contact us at (432)837-3488, or 911 for emergencies.” Posted 11/26/21. (Editor’s note: Photo courtesy of my beloved significant spouse.)
