Storyline

In the 1880s Bat is in Denver, Colorado to judge a rodeo and because his friend Hugh Blaine had sent a note asking him to come. While judging the rodeo Lee Baxter and Willard Wynant stop by to warn him to leave Denver. His friend Blaine tries to hide from Bat the seriousness of his situation but Bat eavesdrops on Blaine's conversation. Baxter and Wynant have hired pony express type riders to bring news quickly from the mining camps blocking Blaine from making any deals. For an equal partnership in Blaine's company Bat devises a solution - carrier pigeons. It works until the nearly bankrupt Baxter and Wynant spot the pigeons. They hire the beautiful Selena Thorn with her falcons to stop the pigeons. Suspecting problems, Bat tracks a pigeon and discovers Thorn and her helper Eric. Bat is taken prisoner by Eric and Lisa but she thinks Bat is the criminal - not Baxter and Wynant. Written by Anonymous
