About 30 minutes north of Houston, in Atascocita, tucked behind the Harris County Fire Marshal's office and the training academy is the Sheriff's Livestock Office.

On any given day, you can find a stray horse, some cattle or even a zebra enclosed in their pens. Edel Howlin went out to the Harris County Sheriff's Livestock office to meet some working cowboys who just happen to wear a police uniform.

To report stray livestock, contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 281-454-6235.
