Kind of. The law was not changed but new people are in charge of the department and they now interpret the law to mean only native foxes. But that still means with someone new in the future they could just as easily change their interpretation to all foxes again, like happened the first time. So it's legal right now but is a risk until there is an actual law change to clarify the wording.

Would Arctic Foxes be considered native or non-native? They don't live in Texas, but they are native to the United States, so not sure.

 

I know red foxes would unfortunately still be illegal since native to Texas. 🙁
