Note: We were a little behind the curve here, as a result of being late to learn about what happened to Travis Williams, and are therefore late passing along the word, but we’re trying to make-up for lost time.
According to Melodi Molt, Burns, Oregon, fellow Harney County Rancher Travis Williams (and original charter member of the Harney County Committee of Safety that was actively involved in trying to help mediate the Oregon Standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge) was involved in a bad pickup/horse/trailer accident a couple months ago. According to Melodi, the horse and dog are fine, but Travis, the truck and trailer didn’t fare so well. Travis ended up in a coma for about six weeks, and is now in a long-term care facility, but he is now able to speak a few words and is feeding himself. Doctors say it may be months, if not years, before he is able to get out of the hospital.
