animals, size of the property and access to guides.

Gonzales County freezes the assets of Paul and Angela Candelaria,
the owners of Candelaria Ranch.
A temporary injunction hearing is April 16 in Gonzales.
Candelaria says he was not aware of the legal action against
him, announced Wednesday, and he looks forward to defending himself
Abbott is also seeking civil penalties of up to $20,000 for each
alleged violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, as
well as restitution to hunters.
