The Mesquiteers are supposedly losing cattle to a bear from the adjoining National park. But the culprits are the Dawson clan who kill the cattle and use Davey's pet bear to leave tracks. When Davey breaks his leg, they find a crutch mark along with the bear tracks and head after the Dawson's. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

It's A Bear Faced Plot
14 June 2006 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The Three Mesquiteers have a real problem on their hands. Bears from the neighboring National Park are running off the cattle from their ranch. These bears are not the Yogi and Boo-Boo kind of bears, they don't confine themselves to running off the with picnic baskets.

The Mesquiteers go into the park to kill the predators and they run afoul of the Forest Rangers.

In the meantime a family of Deliverance type folks from the hill country have a dastardly scheme going and it involves the use of a tame bear who is a pet of young Sammy McKim.

It's really dumb when you think about it. Bears rustling cattle, plenty of bear tracks around, but no dead cattle carcasses. I mean you don't have to be a Daniel Boone like woodsman to figure out it ain't the bears. Of course the Rangers ain't exactly Rhodes Scholars.

This has to be one of the worst of the Three Mesquiteer series.
