Fatal hunting accident, Barbier memorial, holiday travel interview

 Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*A Ville Platte man is killed while deer hunting in East Texas.  Find out what investigators are saying happened in this tragic accident where the man was mistaken for a deer.

*25-year-old Kade Barbier will be remembered today with a memorial ride taking off from Quaker Steak and Lube in Sulphur this evening.  The young man died in a motorcycle crash last Tuesday in Lake Charles.

*A mobile pet shelter for use during disasters is soon to become a reality in Louisiana.  We'll tell you how this will affect pet evacuations in the event of a hurricane.

*The holiday season is the busiest time of year to travel.  Thanksgiving is just two days away and lots of people will be driving to the homes of friends and family.  We will have a live interview this morning with Sgt. James Anderson of Louisiana State Police Troop D about holiday travel safety and a new way to check your driving record online.

*We are checking back in with Chad Austin of KYKZ radio who is Camping out for a Cause benefiting Abraham's Tent.  This is day two of Chad living in a tent and we'll be talking to him alive, along with Pearl Cole of Abraham's Tent.

Make it a Sunrise day!

    While many people across the United States watched today's solar eclipse with special eclipse glasses, some students at DeQuincy Elementary had a different option.  Smiles were on many faces of the third graders at the school, who were able to view the solar eclipse through a special Dobsonian telescope.
