Once he arrives and starts looking closer into the issues he realizes that the problem is definitely there and dangerous to everyone on the ranch.
This is a favorite scene occurring not long before all hell breaks loose.
“They’ve been inseparable for over eight years. No matter how many chickens came or went, Banty never showed interest in anyone else. He hovered around her, keeping any others away from her. He’s going to be so lonely.”
Dallas felt odd that a couple of birds could have a more meaningful relationship than he’d had with his wife. “Let me put the chicken in the barn. I’ll bury her for you in the morning.”
“Thank you. You’ve done that for several things around here lately,” she said, thinking of the cow and the deer that had been shot. He’d taken the backhoe out and dug a pit, disposing of the carcasses.
“You’re feeding me, giving me a free place to stay,” he murmured, not knowing what else to say. Dallas placed a hand on her back as she finished gathering the eggs. All the while, the small rooster followed them around as if he expected the pair to make things right for him.
Then suddenly, out of nowhere, a gunshot tore through the night and Lennon jumped, throwing eggs up in the air. “Damn!” Dallas exclaimed, placing a hand on his own gun and dashing from the henhouse and out into the dark.
“They’ve shot another cow!” Lennon cried, following right in behind him as he ran to his truck. As soon as they were in, Dallas headed out the gate and down the road, expecting to find someone fleeing the scene. Instead, he saw nothing. No one. Parking at the gap, he grabbed a flashlight from beneath the seat. “Let’s see if we can find anything.”
“Okay.” Lennon went with him, catching his sleeve to stay alongside. Without thinking, Dallas grabbed her hand. Once they were in the pasture, he scanned the area with the beam of light, seeing the herd grazing peacefully to one side. “What do you see?” she asked.
He started to say ‘nothing’, but then the flashlight beam landed on something… “My God,” he breathed. “It’s not an animal, it’s a person. Someone’s been shot!” Together they took off, running toward a form that Dallas could see on the ground about fifty yards in the distance.
When they arrived at the body, Dallas went to his knees, finding a man of obvious Hispanic descent. “This looks like someone who might’ve just crossed the river today. I bet he hid out till the sun went down, then decided to walk out.” He wasn’t unfamiliar with undocumented immigrants finding their way across the Rio Grande.
“But who would shoot him?” Lennon was stunned. “Is he dead?”
After examining for a pulse and the wound, Dallas answered. “Yes, shot in the heart.” He didn’t like this; he didn’t like it at all. Staring at the poor individual, he got a distinct chill. The man was small and the way he dressed was very familiar. “I think the same person whose been killing your livestock killed him.” And the scary thing was– from a distance, the shooter might have thought he was aiming at Lennon.
