Storyline

The Virginian arrives at Laura Duff's ranch to buy her Angus cattle where an unfriendly teenager with a rifle finally directs him to the range. He finds her only to learn that she has lost her head bull due to someone cutting her fence and letting her cattle into a patch of loco weed. While she and her largely drunk foreman, Pat Reedy, suspect a hostile rancher, Gus Muller, who wants her land, her son, Jimmy, insists that a friendly neighbor, Alonzo Worth, is responsible, not only for the cattle but also for the death of his father several months earlier. The Sheriff finally arrives but with no real proof there isn't much he can do to help. After dinner that night The Virginian decides to ride out to the cut fence to look for clues. As he tries to light a lantern two shots ring out with one hitting him. Later, he awakens to learn Jimmy found him and brought him to the Duff ranch house where the doctor and Laura have tended to him. After he is somewhat healed, he decides to investigate...

Bullied Beef
19 June 2011 | by (Roseworthy, South Australia) – See all my reviews

Opening on a downed Angas bull which has been poisoned by Loco weed, after a fence was cut, and the Virginian later meeting the widow, Laura Duff, of the property founder.

Her son Jimmy is hot to trot in getting revenge but is talked to by the alcoholic ranch foreman Reedy not that it did much good as it appears Jimmy is intent on causing trouble no matter what.

It looks as though there are a few more suspects than first appears and one in particular is rather close to home. When the Virginians's conversation with Laura about investigating the fence being cut is overheard this leads to the Virginian being shot.
