Slaughter on the Otter
The Kendrick Sheep Raid

by Forest B. Dunning

published by Forest B. Dunning

produced by Sweetgrass Books

  • In mid-November 1900 a herd of sheep crossed a plowed furrow 'deadline' that had separated cattle and sheep public ranges for many years. On the early morning of December 28, 1900, a determined group of cattlemen led by a future Wyoming governor and U.S. senator destroyed a band of 2,113 head of sheep that had 'invaded' their range.

    The story was cloaked by a conspiracy of silence for nearly seventy-five years, until almost forty years after the senator's death. Even then the facts and motivations remained shrouded. This is the full story.
