While on assignment, Harrison penned a story about Gaither Beard, who was reunited with his horse, Billy Jack, one week ago, after Tropical Storm Harvey separated the Beard Family from their beloved pet. – Colleen Harrison/Albert Lea Tribune


Billy Jack is a 5-year-old American quarter horse. He was moved between a number of different locations, before the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty for Animals tracked him to Austin, Texas, and helped bring him back home to Port Arthur, Texas. – Colleen Harrison/Albert Lea Tribune
