Palladin comes to the aid of a Cherokee rancher in trouble. His cattle are dying for unknown reasons and local racist ranchers led by Clyde McNally (Leo Gordon) are trying to force him off his land and kill any of his animals found off his land in fears they will affect the rest of the local animals. Palladin turns to science with the help of local pharmacist Rheinhardt (Vic Perrin) to find the answer--and as a result gyp McNally with a land swindle.
Palladin';s solution to the problem is a little sketchy in this one. Yes, the racist rancher gets his--but even Joseph Whitehorse declares he doesn't want to get the money the way Palladin arranges it.
In what seems like an endless string of Italians playing Native Americans, Anthony Carusco plays Joseph Whitehorse. He's probably best remembered as Bella Oxmix in the "Star Trek" gangster episode. Let's just say he was better cast in that. Leo Gordon is good as the hard headed rancher, but other than showing off Palladin's belief in racial equality and knowledge in science, not one of the top episodes.
