MCKINLEYVILLE - We reported on a dramatic horse rescue yesterday. Today Arcata Fire sent us the actually footage they took of the event. Although this video is about a minute long, the actual rescue took hours. A team effort from emergency response crews that saved the day. A happy ending to what could have been a tragic story.
