Default Tred Barta Paralyzed

Love him or hate him this is bad news. He had a spinal stroke on his way to Alaska.

"On his way to Alaska to tape his TV show, Tred Barta suffered a rare occurrence called a spinal stroke affecting his T2-T10 vertebrae. Since there are only 12 of these Thoracic bones, that’s a very large area. He is currently paralyzed from just below the chest down. Prognosis is way up in the air at the moment. Some medicos predict permanent paralysis while others have given him up to a 60-percent chance of at least partial recovery. His message to everyone is… Don’t take a single second of your life for granted."

I've never even heard of such a thing. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but is he the one that hunts strictly traditional and spot and stalk?

That is too bad... "love him or hate him"...
I have always respected what he does...
Will certainly keep him in our thoughts and prayers for a good recovery.

That's terrible. Hopefully those saying a recovery is possible are right.

Any word on what happened? Was he in an auto accident or injured while hunting? Terrible news.

Love/hate the man or not, it's hard not to respect HOW he pursues his quarry.

I wish him nothing but the best.....but he's got a daunting task before him (from what I've read). 60% chance (tops) for partial recovery.
