#TylerTough t-shirts are available through, a campaign started by a family friend. According to the page, the goal was 150 shirts, but it was quickly reached. Now, over 1,200 shirts have been sold, and over $20,000 raised.

The Louisiana Wildlife Agents Association has set up a bank account at Capital One, where anyone can walk in and donate in the care of Tyler Wheeler. The account number is 2082047754.

Wheeler's father's latest posts to Facebook say he is in stable condition and breathing mostly on his own, though he still has the help of a ventilator.

Wheeler is still being monitored closely at LSU Health's Shreveport Trauma Center.
