The Wolf That Changed America
In 1893, a bounty hunter named Ernest Thompson Seton journeyed to New Mexico on a mission to kill a dangerous outlaw. Feared by ranchers throughout the region, the outlaw wasn't a pistol-packing cowboy or train-robbing bandit. Lobo, as locals simply called him, was the legendary leader of a band of cattle-killing wolves that had been terrorizing cattle ranchers and their livestock.
