Texas is a free range state. People are generally allowed to let cows, goats and other animals roam freely except on US highways or State Highways and/or they live in a county that has a valid and existing stock law. According to the provisions of the Texas Agriculture Code, a livestock owner or those responsible for the control of the animals may be held accountable for these accidents if they knowingly permit their animals to roam on highways and other busy roadways. It is difficult, however, to prove that someone has knowingly let an animal traverse.

Certain counties in Texas also have valid stock laws that will impact the ability to recover compensation following livestock accidents.
