Everything is going wrong on the trail. Men are being killed and injured, the herd is late, a river is flooding ahead and Kiowa Indians are a threat. A massive wild bull is distracting the herd and a reckless drover adds to the problems.
The drive has been an unending list of problems and they are pushing Favor over the edge. The herd is late and shorthanded. Men have been killed and injured. They are coming to a river that is about to flood and Kiowa Indians are around them. The herd has become hard to control and they notice a massive wild bull stalking the herd causing the problem. Drover Fuller is feed up with Favor's pressure and decides to take a night off and go to town. Being a man short the herd stampedes when the bull closes in and the men are delayed getting to the now flooded river. Favor sends Fuller after the bull but he is mortally injured when Hey Soos runs. Favor decides to leave Rowdy in charge while he takes a leave to hunt the bull. Rowdy has his chance but is uncertain on the action to take and the men question him. Favor with Hey Soos try to take out the bull.Written by
Lots of troubles for the drive. So many that Favor and Hay Soos quit. Favor notes that being trail boss is like being in a cage. Wishbone speaks of responsibility and Fuller (played by James Best) illustrates lack thereof. Rowdy gets to be trail boss. The trail drive as a microcosm of life with the titled "toro" symbolic of obstacles to be overcome.
