Eventually justice was served

When two cowboys, Hank Voyles and Joe Kell, have heard about a sheep farmer in the area named Gideon Seek. With this part of Kansas being cattle country, the cowboys want no part of sheep in the area. So they ride over to Gideon's farm and kill all his animals. The sheep farmer does not believe in violence but instead believes that hate will lose in the end so he does not tell the Marshal the people involved with the killing of his herd.

It is only a matter of time before the two cowboys return wanting Gideon to leave the prairie. This time they burn down his house and drag Gideon behind a horse. Even with the serious injuries, Gideon refuses to reveal the names. Matt will need some help to solve this case before Gideon ends up dead.

A well acted episode that was interesting enough to hold the viewer's attention to the end. Even with the passive action by the sheep farmer the story held up well enough that it did not lose interest. Nice watch.
