TPWD News Release — May 17, 2004
Wagstaff graduated from the 43rd game warden cadet class in 1993 and was initially assigned to Harris County. Wagstaff is the 15th game warden to die in the line of duty since 1919.
Each day, nearly 500 Texas game wardens protect the state’s natural resources and citizens, and a bronze life-size statue at the fisheries center honors those who have lost their lives while serving the state. Texas and American flags flank the game warden statue.
