Fundraiser set up for ETX Game Warden

Released by "Chris Fried Support":

"Chris Fried, a Texas Game Warden, was bow hunting on Sunday, December 29th, in the Cooper Wildlife Management Area near Sulphur Springs. During his hunt he observed suspicious activity.  Thinking someone might be illegally hunting on the state property, Chris' law enforcement training kicked in and he left his stand to investigate.

Moments later he was struck in the chest by a large caliber bullet.  He yelled for help, but no one came to his aid.  Chris was able to use his cell phone to call for help and was located over an hour later.  He was initially transported to Hopkins County Memorial Hospital, then to Parkland Hospital in Dallas to undergo surgery.  He is now recovering with the support of his wife, Jamie.

Your continuous prayers, support, and encouragement are vital to his full recovery.  Donations to assist Chris and Jamie with medical bills and other expenses would be greatly appreciated."
